Timetable Changes

As the Coronavirus continues to affect society, we want to update you on changes to our train services.

CrossCountry will continue to follow the advice given from both the Government and NHS to keep our staff and customers safe. We will continue to keep our services running for key workers throughout the prolonged coronavirus pandemic.

We are running a reduced timetable in response to lower demand and in support of the Government’s advice against non-essential travel.

Reduced timetable

From Monday 23 March, until further notice, CrossCountry train services will continue to operate services throughout the day but at a reduced frequency and will not be serving Doncaster, Bath Spa, Torquay, Paignton, Guildford, stations west of Plymouth, or beyond Edinburgh to Glasgow, Dundee or Aberdeen. An hourly train service will be operating on the following routes:

  • Manchester Piccadilly – Bournemouth
  • Plymouth – Edinburgh Waverley
  • Cardiff Central/Birmingham New Street – Nottingham
  • Birmingham New Street – Leicester/Stansted Airport

Some last trains may be earlier than normal and we do advise you check your journey before you travel using National Rail Enquiries or view our timetables below:
