Rail customers advised to check their journeys ahead of upcoming timetable change
TransPennine Express (TPE) is advising its customers across the North and into Scotland to be prepared and check their journeys, with changes to rail timetables planned to take place next month.
The amendments, which are being introduced starting from Sunday 11 December, may mean changes to usual journeys and train times for some customers.
Kathryn O’Brien, Customer Service and Operations Director at TransPennine Express said: “We are planning to make some changes to our current timetable next month and are encouraging customers to check their journeys taking place from 11 December onwards.
“Our number one focus is providing the most reliable and punctual service possible for customers, and we continue to prioritise this following the recent disruption which has impacted some of those using our trains.
“In light of the current challenges affecting our services, we have to be realistic and have made some short-term changes to what we originally wanted to deliver. Our priority is delivering a train service people can depend on whether it’s getting them to work, school or an important appointment.”
Customers should check their journeys using National Rail Enquiries or via the TPE website:
Major engineering work by Network Rail is set to take place at various times throughout the life of the new timetable, including over the Christmas period into New Year and, as such, services will be significantly impacted. More information on this can be found here.
