The recently released MetroCard enables you to easily get around the Liverpool Metropolitan Area, hence the name MetroCard.


The MetroCard is replacing the Walrus Card that was previously used to navigate the City Region.


Unlike a Walrus Card, you can register your MetroCard and top up your funds to travel across the city accordingly, like you would with a FastTag if you are driving through the tunnels.


You can prepay for a day-ticket, for a week, for a month or for the length of term-time.
