Train timetable

Hull Trains announce improved timetable set to start in December

Hull Trains have announced that from December their timetable will return to pre-pandemic levels as more passengers return to Hull’s railways.

Passenger numbers have been on the rise over the last few months leading to renewed confidence from Hull Trains.

Hull Trains intend to run 94 services from December 12th.

This will be a record high for services offered by Hull Trains overtaking its previous record of 92.

December 12th will also see the introduction of an additional Sunday service to match the six services offered on Saturdays.

Ten-car services will also be introduced on Fridays and Saturdays to provide further capacity as demand grows at Christmas time and moving into 2022.

Hull Trains welcome the news after enduring one of the most challenging periods in their 21-year history during the pandemic.

Services were suspended three times during the pandemic and as an open-access operator Hull Trains received no financial support from government.

David Gibson, Managing Director at Hull Trains explained how the timetable expansion signifies a huge marker in Hull Trains’ pandemic recovery.

Mr Gibson said: “This represents a significant milestone for Hull Trains as we grow back to recovery and beyond.

“We are welcoming back loyal passengers, as well as enticing new passengers to rail.

“Our trains are some of the most modern and environmentally friendly on the rail network and we are determined to provide safe, reliable and comfortable journeys.

“Delivering the highest levels of service ever offered by Hull Trains will allow us to break back to profitability and drive the business forward strongly and with confidence.”
