Hull Trains are to suspend their services due to Coronavirus

The company have said it's a result of "unprecedented circumstances

As a result of unprecedented circumstances surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, Hull Trains will be temporarily suspending all train services from early on Monday. 

Passengers with tickets for Hull Trains will be able to travel on alternative train services on the same date and route specified on the ticket. The company say that arrangements have been made to make sure that tickets will be accepted by other train operators.

Louise Cheeseman, managing director of Hull Trains said that suspending services was a difficult decision but it would help to safeguard the future of the business. “We have explored every avenue to try and keep trains running but sadly it is not currently financially viable to run our services. We play a vital role in the regional economy, as recognized by our local MPs, and we fully intend to resume operations as soon as we can,” she explained. 

“It’s been a very difficult week for the business but the reluctant decision to temporarily suspend services is the right one based on the current unprecedented circumstances and I hope our passengers understand this."
