Hull Trains has confirmed that they will be suspending all train services from Thursday 5th November 2020, as England enters its second Coronavirus lockdown.
This is the second time that the operator has cancelled all trains between Hull and London, having been majorly impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic.
Louise Cheeseman, managing director of Hull Trains, said: “Sadly we are reluctantly suspending all our rail services in response to the national lockdown.
Hull Trains is an Open Access Operator as does not receive the financial help from the Government like other franchises like Avanti West Coast and London North Western Railway.
“This is the second time we have temporarily suspended services, and the decision has been made to safeguard the future of the business. It would be foolhardy of us to run trains when people are being asked to stay at home, and our business isn’t in a position to be generating an income from passengers buying train tickets.”
“The feedback from our local community, businesses and stakeholders has been remarkable and continues to give us a real boost. Thank you to all our loyal customers who continue to support us.
“We hope to safely resume services as soon as we can in the future, when it is financially viable to do so. All the information about this temporary measure and what this means for customers and refunds are available on our website.”
