Merseyrail accepting Apple Pay


Merseyrail has become the first train operator outside the south east to accept Apple Pay, following in the footsteps of Transport for London.

This allows passengers to make contactless payments using their iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad or Apple Watch by swiping their device over a chip and pin unit. Merseyrail says it is the first operator to bring in Apple Pay for transactions over £20, meaning all its products, including railpasses, can be bought by this payment method.

Kaj Mook, customer services director for Merseyrail, commented: ‘Yet again, we are blazing a trail in the rail industry and are the first operator to adopt this service for transactions over £20. We’re keen to make everything about travel on Merseyrail easier and more convenient, and Apple Pay does just that.’
