Need to travel? 

We are continuing to review our services in light of the latest government advice.

If you need to make a journey using the Commuter Service or want to know what is happening with all other cruises and events please read our Current Service Information page.

Current Service Information

We are continuing to follow and review our services in light of any government advice and information.

Due to recent government announcements we have seen an increase in the number of people travelling. That is why we are asking everyone to rethink how they travel, consider if they do really need to travel and, if so, when and by what means you will travel.

You can find out more about our Rethink Travel campaign on the Merseytravel website where there is some important journey planning advice as well as information about public transport services.

If you’re thinking of using the ferries then please be aware that social distancing measures will be in place, so you need to plan your journey in advance and leave more time for your journey.

We’re asking customers to pay by contactless/card payments and don’t forget you can use the ticket machines at the terminals - this is to protect both you and our staff.

It’s also important practice good hygiene – avoid touching surfaces, your face, and wash your hands properly both before and after your journey.
