TPE to introduce an enhanced timetable for customers

Friday 03rd July 2020

From Monday 6 July, TransPennine Express (TPE) will be increasing the amount of services run in their amended timetable. This further step up in services provides extra capacity on the network for customers who are travelling by rail.

Although there is this increase in the numbers of services being run, there will continue to be restrictions on capacity to help enable social distancing. Seat markers are on board all TPE services indicating what seats are available for customers to sit at.

Customers who are using public transport, including TPE services, should also be wearing a face covering – unless they are in one of those groups who are exempt from doing so, which include children under the age of 11, people with disabilities and those who suffer from breathing difficulties.

Other precautions are being taken to protect customers from Covid-19 (coronavirus) at such as increasing cleaning at turnaround locations, making sure that crew areas are cleaned so our staff can work safely, and focusing on cleaning those areas that people are more likely to touch.

From Monday 4 July, TPE will generally be running the following services. However, customers should continue to check before they travel:

  • Hourly service between Liverpool and Newcastle
  • Hourly service between Hull and Manchester Piccadilly
  • Hourly stopping service between Leeds and Huddersfield
  • Hourly stopping service between Manchester Piccadilly and Huddersfield
  • Hourly service between Manchester Airport and Redcar Central
  • Hourly service between Cleethorpes and Manchester Piccadilly
  • Two-hourly service between Manchester Airport and Edinburgh
  • Shuttle service between York and Scarborough

Additionally, there will be limited TPE services between Newcastle and Edinburgh along with Glasgow Central to Liverpool Lime Street and Manchester Airport.
