Northern has announced that it is boosting train services between Hull and Bridlington to give passengers more choice and flexibility over the summer.
Service levels have gradually increased during the past few months and this week, Northern has increased services operating between the city and the seaside.
Two additional trains will run in the morning from Hull to Bridlington and will call at Driffield while three extra trains will be available in the evening.
The three extra evening trains will call at Nafferton, Driffield, Hutton Cranswick, Beverley, Cottingham and Hull.
These additional services will run every day, except on Sundays, throughout the summer until September 12th.
Steve Hopkinson, Regional Director at Northern, said: “We’re pleased to be able offer these additional services for customers who want to enjoy the Wolds Coast this summer.
“We advise customers to plan journeys carefully, avoid travelling at peak times where possible and, of course, wear a face covering (unless they are exempt) when on our trains.
“Despite these additional services, we are still not operating a full timetable and we need our customers to do their bit in keeping themselves and others as safe as possible.
“Space is restricted on trains to popular seaside towns, so customers are asked to avoid traveling with cycles and to fold pushchairs, prams and buggies to allow space so the maximum number of people can enjoy the Yorkshire Coast.”
Steve added: “We are doing everything we can to make travelling on our trains as safe as possible.
“But we need our customers to play their part too. Please follow the current government guidelines in your area and those who are travelling can help by making sure they wash their hands regularly, adhere to social distancing, and take any litter with them when they leave our trains.
