Rail industry response to confirmation that restrictions will ease next week

Statement following the announcement by the Prime Minister that 'Plan B' restrictions will be eased from Thursday 27 January.

A spokesperson for the Rail Delivery Group said:

“We look forward to welcoming passengers back to the railway once restrictions ease.

“The pandemic has fundamentally changed the way people travel, but taking the train is crucial to a green economic recovery for our towns and cities. So that passengers can travel with confidence we will monitor timetables closely, running services to fit changed travel patterns and ensuring that rail is an attractive choice. This is in addition to carrying out extra cleaning and providing better information about how busy services are.”
