    Description

    From Monday 6 July, a number of National Rail companies will be making changes to their timetables. Details of the changes being made will be available via the Train Operating Company links below.

    Despite the changes being made though, social distancing means there will still only be space for as few as 1 in 10 of the usual number of passengers. You still need to follow the latest advice from government and public health officials. Please continue to keep services clear for those who need them the most.

    Before you set out please ask yourself if your journey is really necessary, and if it is please cycle, walk or drive if you can.

    But if it is necessary for you to travel by National Rail, you must wear a face covering (unless you are exempt), try to travel off-peak, keep a 2-metre distance from others, and carry hand sanitiser or wash your hands.

    For the latest Coronavirus guidance from the NHS, please visit nhs.uk/coronavirus.

    Answers to the common questions that you are asking about train services and details on refunds can be found on our dedicated Coronavirus page.

    CrossCountry - Revised timetable and social distancing advice

    Train companies affected

    CrossCountry

    Routes affected

    All CrossCountry routes 

    Description

    CrossCountry, along with the rest of the rail industry, are working to support efforts to minimise the spread of coronavirus and to keep services running for necessary travel.

    The government are asking people to avoid public transport if at all possible, to help maintain social distancing and keep the railway for those who need it most.

    If it is necessary for you to travel by National Rail please try to travel off-peak, keep a 2-metre distance from others and carry hand sanitiser or wash your hands. You must also wear a face covering when using public transport - it is now mandatory to wear a face covering during your journey.

    Leicester update: Please be aware should you need to travel to or from Leicester, that the Government has announced a further lockdown of the city for the next two weeks, until at least 18 July due to a rise in Covid-19 cases. CrossCountry's focus is to keep services running for those who need to travel, and they will continue to serve Leicester for those travelling for essential reasons.

    How is this affecting the train service?

    CrossCountry are operating a revised timetable from 6 July to ensure that vital train services can keep running throughout the coronavirus outbreak. CrossCountry will operate many longer trains to provide up to twice the normal capacity.

    As the numbers travelling increases more time needs to be allowed at stations for people to board and alight. To achieve this while also maintaining the national railway timetable, a small number of stations will see their CrossCountry services reduced or withdrawn to allow additional time at the more heavily used stations. Trains continue to operate throughout the day on most routes at a reduced frequency and in some cases with a revised calling pattern.You can view the timetable and a list of stations affected here.

    What advice and information is available on crowding and social distancing?

    If you are making a journey with CrossCountry we strongly advise that you book a place on the train, as availability is limited due to social distancing. If you don't book a place, you may not be able to travel on you preferred service. You can book a place on the train by:

     

    Reservations can be made up to 5 minutes before departure. Customers are encouraged to reserve via the CrossCountry Customer Relations team or Twitter before making a journey to a staffed station.

     

    Where can I find more information?

    The latest advice, including how to travel safely and how to apply for a refund, can be found on CrossCountry's dedicated Coronavirus Page.

    More information can also be found on the National Rail Enquiries Coronavirus page.
