People across Yorkshire have been warned not to travel tomorrow as there will be limited train services due to strike action.
The strike, organised by Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union, is set to take place on Sunday, March 20. As a result of this, TransPennine Express (TPE) will be running an amended timetable on Sunday 20 March with a limited number of services in operation.
Anyone making a journey has been advised not to travel or if the journey is essential, to plan carefully by checking the TPE website or National Rail Enquiries.
Further strikes by RMT are also planned for March 27, April 3, 16 and 17 April, April 30 and May 1 and 4 and June 5.
Kathryn O’Brien, Customer Experience Director for TransPennine Express said: “This will be the sixth weekend that strike action by RMT will impact customers across our network, at a time when more and more are returning to rail and relying on our services to get them to work or to visit friends and family.
“Due to the strike, we will only be able to run a relatively small number of trains on Sunday, and are urging people to avoid travel and instead, travel either side of the strike day.”
For those making an essential journey on Sunday, TPE has arranged ticket acceptance with several other train companies. TPE tickets will be accepted on Northern, Avanti West Coast, East Midlands Railway, CrossCountry, Lumo, LNER (between York and Edinburgh), ScotRail, Hull Trains (between Hull-Brough/Doncaster only) and Transport for Wales services.
Ticket acceptance is also in place for FirstBus services in West Yorkshire for customers who may need to use a bus service to complete a rail journey. Some exclusions will apply and full details are available online.
