Andy Heath, Managing Director at Merseyrail, said:
“During this pandemic, our staff have worked hard to ensure that train services have continued to operate for those who need them, albeit at a reduced level.
“Following the Government’s announcement earlier this week, we are now in a position to increase our services in anticipation of increased numbers of passengers using our trains.
I’d stress that the government guidance remains that public transport is to be used for necessary journeys only.
“I would also like to remind our passengers that – as per government guidance – they must wear a face covering on public transport for the safety of yourselves, fellow passengers and our staff.”
