Train changes coming

Great Northern is working in partnership with businesses as they prepare to reopen in line with Government advice. 

Passengers are encouraged to support social distancing by avoiding travel, where possible, during the busiest times which are now between 6am and 7.30am.

People who are thinking of travelling are asked to check online as an adjusted timetable with more peak trains is introduced from Monday (6 July). The busiest trains are now being highlighted in online journey planners.

To help passengers on their journeys, you should:

  • Try to avoid the busiest times of the day between 6am and 7.30am and stagger your journeys
  • Wear a mandatory face covering
  • Book tickets online or use contactless payments
  • Keep your distance where possible
  • Carry hand sanitiser and wash your hands before and after travelling

GTR Chief Operating Officer Steve White said: 

"From 6 July we will have more peak services and longer trains on our busiest routes so please check before you travel and remember: you must wear a face covering and you should always wash or sanitise your hands before, and after, every journey.

"We are working with business organisations, and other stakeholders, to respond to the easing of lockdown measures but capacity remains limited by social distancing so, where possible, customers should avoid the busiest times of the day which are now between 6am and 7.30am.

"Online journey planners are a great way to check in advance if your train is normally busy."
