Northern Rail has introduced new timetables this month as it moves towards a normal service after the pandemic.

The train operator has been running reduced timetables since the January lockdown, but is now reintroducing services on some key routes.

Tony Baxter, regional director at Northern, said: “We have brought in as many additional services as possible, with the resources we have available, and have prioritised routes and times where there is the most significant demand.

“The timetables we will introduce on May 16 have been designed to provide as many services as possible, at the times our customers need them, without risking punctuality and reliability.

“We want our customers to have confidence in the service we are offering and our plan will give those customers the stability they deserve.”

Northern’s new timetables are on its website or at National Rail Enquiries.
