Train updates during the coronavirus outbreak
Last updated: Tuesday 28 July at 2:41pm
With more people returning to work, and shops, pubs and restaurants re-opening, West Midlands Railway are welcoming passengers back. But, now more than ever, it is vital we all travel responsibly.
To help you travel safely, West Midlands Railway are running as many trains as they can, with as many carriages as possible to maximise space on board. They have also stepped up cleaning on trains and at stations, using the latest antiviral equipment and techniques. You can also do your bit, by maintaining your distance whenever possible, buying your tickets online, travelling at a quieter time, and allowing extra time for your journey as station layouts may have changed. But, most importantly, wear a face covering at all times – unless you are exempt. Responsible travel starts here.
They have also introduced Social Distancing – Live Updates to help you decide whether you want to travel, or should make alternative arrangements.
