Greater Anglia has confirmed that it is adding two extra trains as Ipswich Town football fans make their way to the derby match with Cambridge United on Saturday on the 16th of October
The special additional services which arrive before the game starts will leave Ipswich at 09:20, 10:10 (this additional service will call at Bury St Edmunds, Stowmarket and Ipswich only), 10:20, 11:20 and 12:20.
Following the match, services will depart Cambridge at 17:47, 18:06 (this additional service will call at Bury St Edmunds, Stowmarket and Ipswich only) and 18:47. Later trains will be available as per the regular timetable.
Passengers are urged to use the entire length of both trains and platforms and are asked to wear a face-covering at busy stations and onboard trains.
Martin Moran, Greater Anglia’s Commercial, Customer Services and Train Presentation Director, said: “We know this match is very important to many of our customers, which is why we’re running additional trains. We want to make it as easy as possible for people to attend, and there will be extra members of staff helping people with their journeys.
“To save time and beat the queues, passengers are advised to buy tickets online or via the Greater Anglia app before they travel.
“Our new trains are longer and have more seats, however we would ask everyone to be patient while boarding as we are expecting higher than usual passenger numbers on these services.”
