Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic update

You should only be using train services to get to/from work if you are a key worker and that those making unnecessary travel are going against Government advice and should not travel or go to stations.  British Transport Police are deployed across the network and will be asking people at stations/on trains if their journey is necessary and if they really do need to travel.  Follow on Trans Pennine Express on Twitter.

For the latest Government advice in relation to Covid-19 and travel restrictions, please visit Gov.uk.
