Hull Trains reveals major new service times for commuters
Hull Trains will be running two further services to and from Cottingham and Beverley after approval was granted by the Office of Rail and Road.
The application was made for additional services after the train operating company experienced high levels of demand for these services from passengers. After a lengthy consultation process with key stakeholders, the approval has been granted.
Louise Mendham, production director at Hull Trains, said: “We are delighted that our application has been granted to provide additional services to and from both Beverley and Cottingham.
“Since we launched the first Beverley services in 2015, we have seen overwhelming levels of positive feedback from passengers and this has continued to increase demand for more of this service.
“This is an important step in helping to reduce the amount of cars on the road between Beverley and Hull and increasing connectivity in the region.
“Ultimately, this means greater access for the region to both Hull and London as the company does its part in boosting the local economy.”
The services will start on Monday May 20, 2019, with customers said to be able to buy tickets soon.
Local rail development consultant, Dave Walford, added: “This is excellent news, not just for Hull Trains, but for the passengers across the East Riding, along with the boost it can give to local business and tourism.
“Beverley can market itself as an excellent short break for Londoners, while a further plus is the pressure this should take off Brough station.”
The new services are: With the 6am service from Beverley and the 6.48pm service from London King’s Cross, Hull Trains will now extend its journey to and from Beverley on the 8.23am service from Hull with the 3.48pm service from London King’s Cross.
