Saturday 26th August / Saturday 2nd September

  • There will be a limited service running on our network. Some routes will be closed and there are no replacement buses. Please check before you travel.
  • If you are travelling expect some disruption, plan ahead and check your entire journey.
  • Trains that are running may be busier and are likely to start later and finish earlier.
  • You may be unable to board trains at stations where a limited service is running, especially on the first few trains in the morning. Queuing systems are in place at some stations to ensure that trains have enough room onboard for customers to join all along the route. This is continually under review
  • Only 58 out of our 180 stations will be open. For alternative transport options please visit traveline.
