Guidance on travelling by rail

Guidance on travelling by rail

As we move into the next phase of the UK’s response to Coronavirus, the Rail Delivery Group has issued important guidance. You can find more information at National Rail Enquiries.

Only those who cannot work from home should be travelling to work, and where people do so, they should aim to avoid public transport if possible.

The railway in England will be gradually increasing services from today (Monday 18 May) and running longer trains in some places to cope with increasing demand. To maintain social distancing wherever possible, there will still only be space for as few as a tenth of the usual number of passengers.

The Rail Delivery Group is asking the public to keep the trains for those who really need them by only travelling when there is no alternative. They are also asking employers to help by considering staggered start and finish times, which will enable people to avoid peak hours, and by actively encouraging people to drive, walk or cycle if possible.
