TransPennine Express brings in amended timetable

TransPennine Express (TPE) is advising its customers to check their journeys and allow extra time to travel as it introduces an amended timetable from 10 January.

The changes have been introduced to provide better certainty around services following increased levels of sickness and the ongoing impact of COVID and the Omicron variant. It also takes into account what TransPennine express calls “some industrial relations issues”. 

TransPennine Express will be operating the following services as part of their amended timetable:


Anglo-Scottish services:

Edinburgh Waverley – Manchester Airport, a service every two hours in each direction

Glasgow Central – Manchester Airport, three services per day in each direction

Liverpool Lime Street/Oxenholme – Glasgow Central, two services per day in each direction

Edinburgh Waverley – Newcastle, five services per day in each direction

North TransPennine route:

Newcastle – Liverpool Lime Street, a service every hour in each direction

Redcar Central – Manchester Airport, a service every hour in each direction

Hull – Manchester Piccadilly, a service every hour in each direction

Scarborough – Manchester Victoria/Liverpool Lime Street hourly services will be replaced with a Scarborough – York hourly service, with additional peak time extensions to/from Leeds

Leeds – Huddersfield and Huddersfield – Manchester stopper services will continue to operate hourly

South TransPennine route:

Cleethorpes/Sheffield – Manchester Piccadilly/Airport will operate hourly in the AM and PM peaks and every two hours in the off-peak period

To enable rolling stock maintenance and stabling, the last service of the day between Sheffield – Cleethorpes will operate as a rail replacement bus service

More information on the changes can be found here.

It added that services on weekends might be different due to engineering works.

Matthew Golton, managing director for TransPennine Express said: “While we are disappointed to be making these changes and reducing services, our priority is keeping people moving and providing a greater level of certainty for our customers. 

“We are sorry for any disruption this may cause to journeys and call on our customers to allow additional time for travel and to check carefully for any changes to train times.

“We will continue to regularly review these changes in line with the current situation.”

An enhanced cleaning programme remains in place across all TPE services and customers are reminded of the need to wear a face covering, unless exempt, when using the train or at the station.
