Please refer to the latest COVID-19 updates

Sometimes we have to replace train services with buses due to mechanical faults, issues with the tracks or scheduled maintenance work.

For planned service disruptions check Service Updates. Please note that cycles, other than folding cycles, cannot be carried on buses that are replacing trains
