From today (6th July), East Midlands Railway will be introducing a number of extra train services to its temporary coronavirus timetable.
These extra services are part of a nationwide step up in rail services as lockdown restrictions are eased further.
EMR has been carefully monitoring the number of passengers on their network since the pandemic began. In May, the operator stepped up its timetable by 20% – which provided 80% of their regular timetable.
This further step up will provide additional train services where it is required.
Face coverings are still mandatory for passengers and must be worn.
Will Rogers, Managing Director, East Midlands Railway, said: “We are pleased we can reintroduce more of our services from Monday 6th July.

The following services will be added:
