East Midlands Railway: Timetables

Question for Department for Transport

UIN 20379, tabled on 22 June 2021

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what discussions he or his officials have had with East Midlands Railway on the decision to remove services from the Regional Routes timetable introduced on 16 May 2021.

Answered on

28 June 2021

East Midlands Railway reinstated 100 per cent of its Regional route services on 16 May. The operation of this timetable has not proved to be robust due to the introduction of different fleet, traincrew issues and sickness which East Midlands Railway communicated to officials and key stakeholders in early June. East Midlands Railway’s proposal to scale back the advertised service to one that could be reliably delivered was discussed in advance with the Department.
