As we are extending our plan to lift the remaining national restrictive measures, we have asked the rail industry to increase the number of services they run. Rail operators continue to assess local demand regularly and take the necessary steps to deliver the services passengers need. From 7 September, the railway will operate approximately 92% of its pre-pandemic levels of service, providing a more frequent train service for passengers.
