Transport for Wales to reintroduce Covid-19 timetable to support lockdown

News and Info from Deeside, Flintshire, North Wales

Transport for Wales will be re-introducing an essential travel Covid-19 timetable in response to the tighter restrictions in place across Wales and England.

The timetable changes are being spread across the whole of the network from Monday 25 January.

The move is will support the Welsh government’s public health priority, which aims to reduce the number of people travelling.

Transport for Wales said it will be making “short notice changes and cancellations to services which means anyone making essential journeys should check before they travel.”


Alexia Course, Director of Rail Operations at Transport for Wales said: “The safety of our customers and colleagues remains our top priority.

“It’s vital we provide the right level of service to meet the needs of those customers making essential journeys with us and that we keep them and our colleagues safe.

“The revised timetable will help reduce the risk for our customers and colleagues but still means we can provide a good service for key workers and those who need it for essential journeys.

“Like every area of society, we’ve been hit by Covid-19 and we know the devastating effects it can have on our colleagues and their families, so we’re doing all we can to play our part in preventing the spread of the virus.

“If your journey is essential then please do check your journey details both in advance and on the day itself. And to all our customers who are staying at home right now, thank you for playing your part.”

As well as the reduction in services, Transport for Wales is continuing its enhanced cleaning regime at stations and on trains. Customers who are still travelling must continue to follow our Travel Safer guidance and wear a face covering unless exempt.
