Does anyone know how far towards Chester you can travel on an area b or even, does this cover Parkgate? I can't find information on Merseytravel website.

It only covers the Merseyside part of Wirral. Not the Cheshire part. If you're using a bus, you'd have to get off at Hooton Crossroads or just before Neston depending on which route you're traveling.

It's a bit different on Merseyrail as you can travel as far as Chester or Ellesmere Port. On the Borderlands Line, you can go as far as Heswall Station.

Area B goes south to Heswall and Bromborough, it does not cover Neston/Parkgate/E Port.

i have an area B trio and can jump the bus to liverpool from liscard, new brighton or birkenhead, they don't check at the other end and with a trio/saveaway you dont tell them where you're going, you just show it and get on.

so technically you can get to chester etc with one, but maybe not back.


*i know what i do is technically if you're gonna be picky 'fraud' but i pay 60 a month for my trio, but at close to 4 to go from one side of the birkenhead tunnel to the other on an arriva bus that, to me, constitutes daylight robbery.

Really? I've been told it's not valid at all on the Borderlands line.

It is valid on the Borderlands Line but only as far as Heswall. It's different to Merseyrail as this line is operated by Arriva Trains Wales. Saveaways can be used across the boundary on Merseyrail as this is a quasi-subsiduary of M.P.T.E.

Yes, I use mine mostly on Merseyrail, but the Merseytravel help line says it's not valid on Borderlands. I enquired when I wanted to use it from Upton to Bidston one day.

Chester is in Area G, Touchstone, and therefore need an All Zone Saveaway.

What with Ferry times, commuter services, cruises and prices, combined attraction and cruise prices.Saveways,Trios and Solos, Areas and Zones ,where you can use them, when you can use them, what you can use them on, how far you can go. Good Lord, no wonder the grey matter is clogging up and I can't do my sums anymore.
Anyway .....................
This site seems to be quite straight forward and makes it clear to understand. Quite simple really when you understand it all!!

Oh yes forgot to say, if you think Mersey Travel and Saveaways are confusing, have a look at the above site I linked, on the Rangers and Rovers section . eek

Sorry Granny, my mistake. Yes, only All Zone Saveaways can be used to from Hooton to Chester/Ellesmere Port.

I think Traveline has given you duff information there, Chris. I'm 99% certain you can use a Saveaway from Bidston to Upton.
