Prepare passengers travelling at Christmas suggested to ebook forward
TEACHERS who are planning to travel for Christmas are advised to reserve a ticket as soon as possible.
TransPennine Express (TPE), which operates operations through Malton, is asking operators between December 23 and 27 to reserve online reserves, preview and allow more time for work to be busy than before.
It plans to run about 80% of its pre-Covid-19 operations following a time change on December 14. Many trains run with extra trucks to support social distance; However, trains need to be busy, especially before and after Christmas.
Customers can also reserve seats (which correspond to the height of the occupants) when they are restored from December 14th.
Liz Collins, interim supervisor at TransPennine Express, said: “We urge those planning to use our ships to see friends and relatives at Christmas to book as soon as possible, check before traveling, give them extra time and follow the instructions for making their trip.
“Our team is working very hard to ensure that jobs are safe, but we all have a role to play in protecting ourselves and others, wearing masks and frequent hand washing, or using laundry detergent.
“We will also have some international and local co-workers at Christmas to help anyone who needs it.”
As usual, TPE activities end early in the Christmas season and no one will be present on Christmas Day or Boxing Day. The program will resume on December 27, although it will start shortly afterwards.
