  • CrossCountry customers are being advised to plan ahead for Easter getaways
  • Train timetables are changing to enable more reliable journeys over the bank holiday weekend
  • Engineering work across the network could also lead to longer journeys or bus replacement services for some customers

Long-distance train operator CrossCountry is asking passengers planning rail getaways this Easter to check ahead to ensure smooth and reliable journeys.

Until Saturday 6 April - including over the Easter bank holiday weekend - changes to CrossCountry’s usual timetable will ensure more reliable journeys and fewer on-the-day cancellations for customers planning to travel over Easter.

Focusing on specific services over certain periods of the bank holiday weekend will reduce the chance that these key services are cancelled - ensuring rail passengers can reach their destinations safely and smoothly over the long weekend.

Additionally, planned engineering work on various CrossCountry routes will mean increased journey times and bus replacement services at different times over the Easter weekend*.

Richard Morris, CrossCountry’s Service Delivery Director, said: “This Easter we’re dedicated to keeping last-minute cancellations to a minimum for customers around the country.

“We know that the Easter holidays are a popular time for leisure travel, and this year a range of factors mean there will be more changes than normal to CrossCountry services over the bank holiday weekend.

“As usual for this time of year, we’re asking customers to check before they travel on the CrossCountry app or with National Rail Enquiries to make sure their journey is going ahead as planned.”

Information on planned changes to CrossCountry services over the Easter bank holiday weekend can be found on our Easter Travel Information page. For on-the-day information, please view our JourneyCheck service.
