These short term changes are only temporary and will be subject to a regular review based on numbers travelling, says the company.

“Following a request from the Government for all rail companies to reduce their timetables to better match the current passenger demand, we will be introducing a revised train plan based on current demand and numbers travelling. These changes are only temporary, and we would advise anyone planning on travelling by train to plan ahead and check before they travel.”

An enhanced cleaning programme is currently in place to protect key workers and those making essential journeys, unless exempt, face coverings must be worn at all times on both trains and at stations.
