Network Rail are running a new taxi sharing scheme, so passengers arriving at Euston can get where they’re going faster, save money – and cut their carbon footprint too.

  • Weekday mornings between 8.00am and 10.00am – if there are long queues
  • Collect a destination zone voucher from a Taxi Share Marshal
  • Go to the priority loading bays
  • A Marshal shows you to your shared taxi
  • Pay the driver the fixed fare shown on your voucher (see map to right)
  • Each passenger gets dropped off in turn, according to the best and quickest route decided by your driver

For more information, please speak to a member of Network Rail’s station team or visit www.networkrail.co.uk/euston

Liverpool CDP and Merseyrail are pleased to announce that from 31 March Moorfields station Old Hall Street entrance will remain open until 9pm Monday to Friday.

The longer opening hours of the entrance, and the on-site M to go shop, will be piloted over a 6 month period and depending upon its success, could continue indefinitely.

Paul Rice, Liverpool CDP Chief Executive explained: “We have been working closely with Merseyrail, Merseytravel, and our public and private sector partners over the last 12 months to secure this pilot scheme.

“I believe the longer opening hours will help to serve our business and residential community in the area more effectively as they can now catch the train from their doorstep after 7pm.

“We are also pleased to announce that the M to go shop will stay open until 9pm.” he added: “M to go shop offers a full range of services, from a cup of coffee to buying your train ticket through to London or anywhere else on the national rail network.”

To mark this important change, Liverpool CDP & Merseyrail will be running a competition in the Daily Post in the next few weeks with the lucky winner receiving a year’s free rail travel on the Merseyrail network.

Bart Schmeink, Merseyrail’s Managing Director said: “There are major changes happening in the Commercial District and people’s travel patterns in the area are changing. I am delighted that together with the Liverpool CDP, we have been able to respond to these changes by extending the opening hours of the Old Hall Street entrance for a trial period.”
