TRAVEL SAFELY WITH HULL TRAINS

It is no longer a legal requirement to wear a face covering. The government suggests that you continue to wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces where you may come into contact with other people you do not normally meet, as a courtesy to other passengers and staff.

This is what to expect on a Hull Trains service so you can travel with confidence. Our absolute priority is keeping you and our crew safe.

• Face masks are recommended to be worn on board our trains and in enclosed areas.
• Seat reservations are available on all Hull Trains services. During busy times you may be seated next to another passenger.
• We will continue to have cleaners on board every Hull Trains journey, particularly focusing on areas that customers and staff are more likely to touch, such as handrails, door buttons, tables, arm rests and toilets
• E-tickets are encouraged over paper tickets

Face Coverings From 27th January

From Thursday 27th January, government guidelines around face coverings have changed. You will no longer be required to wear a face covering, but the government suggests you continue to wear one in crowded and indoor spaces where you may come into contact with people you do not normally meet.

We recommend that you wear a face covering when moving around the train, or in any crowded parts of the train, if you are able to do so.

Fresh Air Onboard

Air handling systems on trains keep air onboard clean and fresh, with a full carriage’s worth of air from outside drawn in every 6-9 minutes.

Simultaneously, the system extracts air from within the carriage to allow the flow of fresh air to be replenished and move throughout the train and carriages.
