New timetable launches as rail passengers rise

Solihull Editorial 5th Dec, 2022   0

IT’S ALL change across Chiltern Railway services as a boost in passengers sees a new timetable launched.

The train operator, which runs through Solihull and Dorridge stations, says it will add over 1,000 seats to the busiest services – particularly on commuter services into and late-night departures from London Marylebone from December 11.

This comes after the operator says it has seen passenger numbers continue to recover post-pandemic.

In a statement Chiltern Railways said: “As Chiltern uses all of its available rolling stock, some lesser-used services have been shortened to reflect demand, while still ensuring that all customers have a comfortable journey.

“These data-driven changes will serve to improve customer experience across the network as the rail recovery continues.

“Chiltern Railways will continue to monitor crowding levels and are committed to making further demand-based changes to the timetable to help alleviate pressure on busier services.

“There are also some further amendments to calling patterns and service times.”
