TransPennine Express announces a timetable change later this week
TransPennine Express (TPE) has confirmed that there will be no major changes to its services when the next timetable is introduced from Sunday 21st May, however some timetable changes may result in changes to train times for some customers.
The operator offers services from York to cities such as Leeds, Manchester and Liverpool, as well as to Malton and Scarborough.
As The Press reported last week, the services operated by TPE are to be brought under government control.
Transport Secretary Mark Harper confirmed that decision due to “continuous cancellations” from the operator.
The cabinet minister decided not to renew or renew the TPE contract and transferred the services to the Department of Transportation’s Operator of Last Resort from May 28.
Kathryn O’Brien, customer service and operations manager at TPE, said the company will be making some “minor changes” to its current schedule this month.
She added: “Our primary focus is to provide customers with the most reliable and timely service possible and we have continued to prioritize this after the recent disruption has affected some of our train users.”
“Our priority is to provide a train service that people can rely on, whether it’s commuting to work, school or an important appointment.”
The new timetables are now available for viewing TPE website.
