The government has recently announced a window from Thursday, December 4 to Wednesday December 9 to help students return home for vacation.
To help students with this task, EMR asks them to plan for the future and use its application or program page to reserve their tickets.
If they are tested after posting online their trip can be moved to another day – at no cost.
Student customers are also asked to use the EMR’s Seat Finder tool to identify fixed ships and to avoid more complex tasks, the tool is available on its website.
In addition to keeping a safe distance from fellow passengers and colleagues, customers are also reminded to wear a face mask whenever you are on the train and inside the train. When sitting in a cart, all passengers are asked to avoid sitting next to each other if at all possible and if seated at a table, so that they can sit facing each other.
If the passengers are not feeling well they should stay home to be tested.
Neil Grabham, Customer Service Manager for the East Midlands Railway, said: “We are excited to help students and help them get home to their families for Christmas. In recent weeks, we have been in touch with local universities through our network and have tried to implement our educated customers.
“Obviously, this will be a joint exercise, so to help the week run smoothly we encourage students to follow a few steps. This includes pre-departure tickets, use our Seat Finder tool to save time, and follow the safety tips available online and in-house our place.
“We are ready to receive student clients next week and wish them a Merry Christmas.”
