TransPennine Express;

On all Sundays until 5 June (and additionally on Saturday 4 June during the Jubilee weekend), industrial action is being taken by RMT conductor members. The planned strike dates are listed below, but further dates may be announced:

  • Sunday 29 May
  • Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 June


Weekend Industrial Action - Travel Advice:

You can find the latest travel advice and amended strike timetables here

If you’re planning to travel on a day affected by RMT strikes you should check for updates up to the last minute, as services may be subject to short notice changes. You should also allow extra time for journeys as services will be far busier than normal.

In the event that these will be required, TransPennine Express will seek to source and provide stand-by buses at certain locations.

Alterations to the timetable on non-strike days from Monday 16 May:

Some TransPennine Express services may face ‘on-the-day’ alterations as a result of short-notice sickness due to the continuing legacy of the pandemic. Please check Journey Planners as close to your date and time of travel as cancellations and alterations may be advised at the last minute.

Check before you travel:

All non-strike days can be checked using the National Rail Enquiries real-time Journey Planner. Please check back on the day you are travelling for the most up to date information.

​​​​​Please check back nearer to the time of travel for the strike days from Sunday 29 May onwards as journey planners are not yet reflecting the reduced timetable.
