Passengers between major urban areas across the North will benefit from a comprehensive range of improvements with the introduction of higher-quality services on longer-distance routes which includes the route between Doncaster and Hull. The package of improvements which are still being rolled out, will include better trains, more comfort and reduced journey times on some routes.

Train services between Hull and Doncaster are also provided by Hull Trains which is an open-access operator and is in the process of introducing a new fleet of brand new trains.
