To help keep you on the move during RMT strike action on Saturday 23 June we will run as many services as possible each day.
On Saturday, most trains will run between 7am and 7pm, though, on a handful of routes, services will begin to wind down earlier.
As the overall number of trains running will be reduced across the three days, we expect trains and any replacement buses we operate to be extremely busy. Please allow extra time for journeys, plan carefully and consider whether travel is necessary.
During the RMT strike action we expect all services to be busy, especially in the morning and evening peak periods, and advise you to allow extra time to travel.
The only Northern services that will run are those listed on this page.
The timetables with a bus icon ( ) are our rail replacement bus services. If your station is not serviced by a train or rail replacement bus, you may be able to catch an existing local bus service.
Not all stations will have a train service – please check here for details.
The timetables replace all others - including those put in place for engineering work
You may be able to use your ticket on other train operator services.
You will be able to use tickets on Arriva Bus services (including Yorkshire Tiger) to make journeys you would otherwise have made by rail.
