Open-access operator Hull Trains is planning to start running services again from Friday 21 August. Trains will run between Beverley and London King’s Cross for the first time since Sunday 29 March, when services were temporarily suspended due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Initially, Hull Trains will introduce a limited timetable, running two services Southbound and Northbound on Monday to Saturday and three services Southbound and Northbound on a Sunday.

Louise Cheeseman, Hull TRains.

Managing director Louise Cheeseman commented: “I am so thrilled to announce a return date for Hull Trains as the numbers of people using rail services has started to increase across the country. By relaunching services in August, we are giving families and friends an opportunity to spend some quality time together.

“Tourist attractions in the capital are opening up again and we expect to see people making the most of day trips, weekends away and the bank holiday.

“We are excited to give people the opportunity to travel safely so they can make the most of the rest of the summer season and the services we plan to introduce on the timetable will give people the best chance to do this.

“I want to reassure our customers that extra cleaning measures will be taking place onboard the trains. There will be a dedicated cleaning team on every service, socially distanced seats will be clearly labelled, and all health and safety precautions will be met so people can travel with confidence.

“We will continue to review the numbers of people travelling and will introduce more services as demand increases.”
