Merseyrail will be amending services to run every 30 minutes from today, in line with government advice regarding non-essential travel.
All trains will be made up of six-car carriages to keep the passengers moving.
Monday to Saturday services will be running from their regular start time with a 30-minute frequency, with services on Sundays staying the same.
There are likely to be further amendments to the Merseyrail timetable over the coming weeks.
What did the officials say?
Andy Heath, Managing Director at Merseyrail, said:
“The safety of our staff and customers is of the upmost importance and these measures have been taken to ensure that we continue to provide a reliable, consistent service train service so essential workers can still travel around the Liverpool City Region.
“Merseyrail, alongside the rest of the UK rail industry, is being proactive in its response to this pandemic, ensuring the latest government advice is shared with staff, including reminding people about good hand hygiene and keeping surfaces clean.
“When travelling by train, if you need to cough or sneeze, they should make sure they follow the Public Health England advice to ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’.”
