When you travel by train, travel with confidence. Here is our Safer Travel Pledge to you.

We are

Installing hand sanister points at over 300 stations, replenishing soap more frequently at stations and on train, and installing vending machines at over 150 stations to provide face coverings and travel hand sanitiser Link to Facebook Messenger tool. Sign up for disruption and crowding alerts on services and at stations


Air Handling Systems Onboard

Did you know trains with air handling systems draw fresh, clean air inside the train carriage from outside? Help customers travel with confidence on the network

Image and quote from Justyna Slusarczyk, Train Manager “Trains with air handling systems draw in a carriage’s worth of fresh air every 6-9 minutes, helping passengers to feel confident when they travel.”

  • Avoid busy times - Travel at quieter times and keep your distance wherever possible
  • Wash your hands - Carry hand sanitiser and wash your hands before and after your journey
  • Wear a face covering - you must wear a face covering when travelling on National Rail services, at stations, and on platforms, unless you are exempt.​​​​​​​

You can find out more about what we are doing to keep you safe here.
