Commuters

Taking a Mersey Ferry to work offers a relaxed, healthy way to travel and is the most direct route between Woodside and Liverpool City Centre.

We run a frequent weekday service between our Woodside and Liverpool Gerry Marsden terminals, with a journey time of around 10 minutes. As well as offering a unique commute, our service also offers free parking at Woodside if you buy a weekly, monthly, quarterly or yearly pass.

Weekday Commuter Services operate between 07:20am – 09:50am and 17:00pm - 18:50pm. All services will operate from Pier Liverpool Gerry Marsden and Woodside, whilst Seacombe is closed for major refurbishment work. Find out more about the temporary closure of Seacombe terminal closure online.

Please note we only accept contactless payments at the terminals.
