A new rail timetable came into effect on 17 May 2020, providing more space on board for key workers and others who need to make essential rail journeys.
Wherever possible, please consider walking, cycling or driving to make your journey instead of using public transport at this time.
For enquiries about train times, fares, season tickets and station information:
Check which taxi services are available at rail stations across Great Britain with TrainTaxi.
