Travel with confidence using UK Rail

Travel With confidence

The Rail Delivery Group are taking extra steps to help you travel with confidence on UK Rail during the course of the pandemic:

Maximising Space

To maximise space, they are;

  • Making extra room to help with social distancing.
  • Displaying new social distancing signs on trains and stations to help you get around safely.
  • Designing timetables to maximise services at the busiest stations and times of day, to reduce delays.

Boosting Cleaning

They are cleaning trains and stations; 14,000 carriages and 2,500 stations, more frequently, using powerful anti-viral cleaning products to give added protection.

Helping with Hygiene

They are replenishing soap in stations and trains more frequently, installing hand sanitiser points in over 300 stations and vending machines in over 150 stations that sell face coverings and sanitiser.

Improving Information

Having up to 2,500 extra people available as necessary at key locations, to answer your questions and concerns.

During your train journey, please follow this guidance;

  • 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.
  • Bring a face covering– Make sure you wear a face covering through your journey unless you are exempt.
  • Check before you travel – Plan ahead by clicking here
