Hull Trains introduced a reduced timetable from December 27th as customer demand changed due to COVID-19 and concerns over a possible future lockdown. As the country was impacted by the significantly more infectious Omicron variant, this caused uncertainty and a significant fall in passenger numbers.
The reduced timetable came less than a fortnight after the business had introduced its 94th service, the highest service level ever offered in the company’s history. This reflected increasing demand for services as demand was rising steadily in early December.
Since that time, Hull Trains has monitored the situation daily and can now announce that the 1708 Hull – London Kings Cross, and 2030 London Kings Cross – Hull will be reinstated to our passenger timetable services and put back on sale earlier than planned on February 7th.
David Gibson, Managing Director, said: “This is really positive news for our business and for passengers of Hull Trains. We can already see that demand has started to return with sales increasing and the numbers of reservations being made on the rise. We will continue to monitor sales and revenue every day and will reinstate all other withdrawn services at the earliest opportunity.”
