Keeping You Safe

What we're doing

TransPennine Express continues to work hard to keep services running.

What we’re doing to keep you safe:

  • To protect our customers and staff, we have greatly increased cleaning on board our trains and at our stations particularly focusing on cleaning those areas that customers and colleagues are more likely to touch, such as handrails, door buttons, tables, arm rests, toilets and ticket vending machines. We are using Zoono, a powerful long-lasting sanitising treatment which kills 99.99% of viruses and bacteria on surfaces. It is being sprayed in our carriages using a fogging or misting machine and is the latest addition to our already increased safety measures. 


  • At stations, we have introduced clear markings on flooring in areas where people are likely to queue or congregate.
  • Providing clear customer advice in stations and on trains.
  • Due to social distancing guidelines, available seating on board our services has been greatly reduced and limited to around 15 to 20 people per carriage.
    To help guide customers to socially distance from one another we have introduced green and red labels on our seats to indicate where you can and cannot sit. Please note, it may not be possible to socially distance at all points throughout a journey so please keep your distance wherever possible.
