Find a seat by travelling on a quieter service 

If you'd like to plan ahead for a safe and comfortable journey with us, use the information guides below to search seat availability on average TransPennine Express weekday services. Although this is just a guide, it shows which train services are likely to have plenty of seats available, and which are likely to be busier.

We update this information every 6 months and whilst it covers the whole network, it may not reflect seat availability on the specific service you're travelling on.

For more information, speak to a member of staff when you arrive at the train station and they'll be happy to help.
