You could save time and money with a Railpass, how you spend your savings is your business!

Railpass is likely to work out cheaper than buying a daily ticket and you can buy one to cover a week, a month or even a year. The longer you get one for, the more you save. You also sidestep those early morning ticket queues and no more searching for your daily train fare. So more money in your pocket, more time on your hands. Add it to today’s list of smart decisions.

Weekly, monthly and annual Railpass products are valid all day within your chosen area, including evenings and weekends.

There are also Young Person's Railpass products for those aged 18 and under and there are Term time passes valid Monday to Friday, until 8pm, during term time only.

Use the Railpass Calculator at the bottom of this page to quickly check the cost of a Railpass for your journey and to see exactly how much you could save.

For example, if you normally buy 5 adult standard return tickets between Ormskirk and Liverpool Central every week, switching to a monthly Railpass would save you the equivalent of 1 week's travel a month!

How to purchase a Railpass

To purchase a Railpass, download and complete the application form at the bottom of this page, or here, and take it to any of our staffed stations, along with a passport-size photo and some form of identification. If you are purchasing a Term Time pass you will need to provide proof that you are in full-time education with a valid student card or by getting your application stamped by your education provider. Application forms are also available at our staffed stations.

Railpasses can be renewed quickly and easily at any of our staffed stations and weekly passes can be renewed from any of the ticket machines located at various stations on our network.
