Travel Pass?

Is there a 3 day travel pass available for the city similar to those in Amsterdam and New York etc?

in short no

you can buy a daily travel pass or a weekly one

where abouts are you staying and where abouts dd you intend going, as there are several types of travel pass

eg, bus only, bus, train & ferry

also some bus companys offer their own passes, specifficlly for their buses, eg Stagecoach, which can only be used on Stagecoach buses

the best one to get is a daily savaway ticket, either a Zone C or all Zones (probably the best) this will cover from Chester to Southport on all forms of transport

and you can buy these for adults and children

You can use an All Area Saveaway (£4.70 for an adult) on the Mersey Ferry - but you MUST break your journey.

For example, get the ferry from Pier Head via Seacombe to Woodside. Get off at Woodside and either go to the excellant U-Boat Story Museum at the ferry terminal, or walk up to Hamilton Square etc, then get the next Mersey Ferry back to Pier Head.

At each ferry terminal ticket office just show your All Area Saveaway and ask for your free boarding pass.

Or you could use the All Day Saveaway to get the Merseyrail train from Liverpool Central or James Street to Port Sunlight "model village" over on the Wirral. Then get the train back from Port Sunlight and get off at Birkenhead Hamilton Square, walk down to Woodside ferry terminal and get the Mersey Ferry back over to Pier Head.

If you want to just stay on the Liverpool side of the river and go to the south of Liverpool to see Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields or to visit Speke Hall, just get a Area C Saveaway for £3.50.

But if you plan on just staying in the city centre then there is no need to use any public transport as everywhere is easily accessable on foot.
