London Northwestern Railway will resume train services between Bedford and Bletchley on Monday the 24th of August.
The services were suspended at the end of March due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, as well as other factors, including the impact of the virus on the train crews, low passenger numbers, and level crossing reliability issues throughout the route.
Rail replacement buses have been in service, and will be for most of August.
On the 24th of August, London Northwestern Railway will resume the service for the morning and evening peak services only, with a full timetable in operation by the end of 2020. The new timetable will be published shortly.
Lawrence Bowman, customer experience director for LNR, said: “I would like to thank our customers on the Marston Vale Line for their patience and understanding while we have been working hard to bring back their train service.
“The coronavirus had an unprecedented impact on our traincrew, and we had to make hard decisions on how to use our available resources to move the maximum number of passengers.
“I am pleased we will once again see passenger trains on the Marston Vale Line in August and barring any unforeseen events we hope to run an even fuller service later this year.”
