UK’s Virgin Trains has announced plans to launch an hourly open-access train service between Liverpool and London from May 2021.

The rail operator has already submitted an application with the Office of Rail and Road (ORR) seeking permission to launch the service.

Virgin Trains plans to run 24 services a day between London Euston and Liverpool Lime Street. The service will provide intermediate stops at Lichfield, Tamworth, Nuneaton and Liverpool South Parkway.

Tickets for this service will be at least 10% cheaper compared to equivalent services offered by other operators.
