Get to the ground


Responsible travel starts here.

As the country slowly changes its lockdown measures, partners West Midlands Railway are asking you to only travel by train if your journey is necessary to help keep services for essential workers.

They will be running the longest trains and the most frequent service they possibly can, but the current social distancing rules mean there are far fewer places for passengers than normal.

If you have no alternative, then please read their travel guidelines which will help you understand how you need to prepare before you set off including: wear a face covering, carry hand sanitiser and wash your hands before/after your travel.

Please remember – all train times and service frequency have changed, we need you to plan ahead and buy online and avoid busier times if you can. Read their helpful travel guidelines at
