Merseyrail Saw Over 90,000 Extra Journeys Made As Eurovision Revellers Travelled Across The Region

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Rail Advent.

These two paragraphs outline the story.

Merseyrail has reported an approximate increase of 24% in journeys made when compared to the same period in 2022 with an extra 90,000 trips made with the rail operator whilst Liverpool hosted Eurovision.

Special strategies were put in place to facilitate the increase in passengers, including late-night services to support the two busiest nights with trains running into the early hours following the Grand Final.

Sounds like Liverpool had a result, even if the UK didn’t.

  1. A lot of people I know went to Liverpool – some train, some bus, some car – although why anyone would take a car at such a busy time. Those who went said that the atmosphere in city was amazing, awesome, buzzing, alight and various other adjectives. And these were all people who didnt have tickets for the show or the outdoor screening, they just wanted to “experience the vibe”.

    From my personal point of view – I am glad it was in Liverpool and not Manchester!
