From Monday 6 July, TransPennine Express will be increasing train services that run in their amended timetable.

The step-up in capacity comes as lockdown restrictions are lifted across England, allowing more businesses to reopen.

Although there is an increase in the numbers of trains being run, there will continue to be restrictions on capacity to help maintain social distancing.

Passengers who are using public transport should wear a face covering. This is mandatory – except for the exempt list of passengers, which include those with disabilities, breathing difficulties or children under 11.
