Travellers advised to plan ahead of September rail strikes on @merseyrail and @northernassist
Check before you travel: If you're a rail user plan based on current information available, but be prepared to adapt your plans as timetables may change on strike days. Leave longer for your journey: Rail stations are likely to be busier as a result of reduced rail services. Don't aim for the last scheduled train, get there early. Avoid travelling at peak times where possible. Stick to public transport wherever possible to reduce congestion on key routes aush as the Mersey Tunnels and raods in and out of the City Centre. Bus may be a good alternative for you on strike days, with an extensive network across teh Liverpool City Region. Speak to your employer about whether there is any flexibility in working times or the possibility of working from home. If you ahve no option but to drive, consider car sharing.
