While the majority of services will stay the same, changes across TPE’s network will include:

  • There will now be 40 services per day along the West Coast Mainline (Manchester Airport/Liverpool Lime Street to Edinburgh/Glasgow Central)
  • Extra services between Manchester – York via Wakefield and Castleford
  • Additional summer weekend services between York and Scarborough for trips to the seaside
  • Later additional services between Liverpool and Manchester for people wanting to enjoy an evening out

Chris Jackson, Managing Director at TransPennine Express, said:

“We’re pleased to be able to offer these extra services for our customers.

“While most of our timetable will stay the same, we urge customers to check before they travel in case there are any slight changes to their services.”

Chris added:

“Our number one priority is providing a consistent and reliable service for customers, and this timetable will allow us to continue to do so, while also bringing more benefits to customers.

“We have significantly reduced cancellations to services, and we will continue to make improvements.”
