The Combined Authority has responsibility for public transport across Liverpool City Region.

We are investing in new vehicles, new stations and new routes to make public transport accessible to even more communities and people across the city region.

However, with the cost-of-living crisis placing more and more pressure on households, we’re also determined to put money back into the pockets of residents. That’s why we’ve cut the cost of a single bus journey to just £2 across our network.

We’ve also frozen the cost of a MyTicket, which allows young people under the age of 19 to benefit from all day unlimited travel on the region’s bus network, at £2.20 until 2025.

We also run one of the UK’s most generous concessionary travel schemes offering free or cut-price travel to people aged 60 or over, disabled people, apprentices and children and young people.

Which pass is right for you?

There are free travel passes available for people aged 60 or over and disabled people facing certain barrier.

Through Merseylink Membership we also offer a dial-a-ride service for people with mobility problems or difficulties, who cannot use ordinary public transport some or all of the time.

Half-price travel on buses and trains is available to apprentices aged between 19 and 24 years old with our Apprentice Travelcard.

Under 5s travel free on bus, train and ferries in the Liverpool City Region. Children and young people aged between 5 to 18 years old can access reduced fares on bus and train by purchasing one of Merseytravel’s young people’s tickets.

The best way to travel for some people – particularly on small journeys – will be on bike, scooter or by walking. Not only does it save money, it’s also better for your health and well-being and for the planet.

You can find out more about Active Travel here.

In addition, Mersey Tunnel toll discounts are available to Liverpool City Region residents and to drivers with a T-Flow pre-paid account. Details of both schemes can be found here.

A Mersey Tunnels Concessionary scheme is also available for disabled people facing certain barriers.
