“As England cautiously moves out of lockdown in the coming months, we shall continue to monitor demand from passengers. I am confident that we can safely resume once more people begin to travel again and it’s financially viable for us to roll out our resumption plan.
“Thank you to all our customers for ongoing support and we shall share any news on return dates as soon as we are able.”
Hull Trains is an open access operator. This means we rely on revenue from ticket sales to operate our services and we did not receive any emergency measures support.
We hibernated the business in March 2020 to protect the long-term future of the business and we took advantage of the furlough scheme.
Passengers can still travel with us and we have introduced several safety measures so people can travel with confidence.
We are not currently offering catering onboard, as part of our health and safety measures, and the proposed changes will mean that our onboard trolley service will not be reinstated.
Hull Trains plays a vital role in the local economy and we are working closely with FirstGroup to cautiously roll out a sustainable business plan.
