Eurovision 2021

🇬🇧 #ESC23: MerseyTravel Issue Updated Travel Advice

This week, we SHARED MerseyTravel’s Eurovision 2023 online portal ahead of the Contest taking place in Liverpool, this May.

MerseyTravel have now issued updated travel advice. If you live or are staying local:

  • Cycle and walk if you can – This will ease the pressure on transport services.

If you’re using public transport:

  • Plan ahead – Expect services to be busier than usual across the whole fortnight.
  • Check timetables – Make sure to do this ahead of and on your day of travel in case there are any changes. MerseyTravel will also use Twitter to publish changes made at short notice.
  • Leave plenty of time – Some journeys might take longer than usual or be subject to delay or changes at short notice.
  • Consider your options – The transport network is expected to be busier than usual. Think about staggering your travel home times and have a plan B in case you can’t get the service you planned for.
  • Buy travel tickets in advance and online if you can – this will speed up your journey and help you avoid queues on the day.
  • Travel light if you can – As you would expect, services will be busy so there’s not much room for large amounts of luggage.
  • Arrive early at the station/stop/terminal in good time – This is to avoid disappointment as there may be queues particularly on the nights May 7 and 13 to get home.
  • Consider multi-modal tickets – Tickets that can be used over different modes of transport, such as Saveaways, will give you more options.
  • Be patient – there will be lots of people travelling for the events.
  • Please be kind and respectful to transport staff – Remember that they are working really hard to get you to where you need to be. Let’s make this event fun and be proud of our region!
