We are continuing to experience higher levels of Covid-19 cases and self-isolation than expected and that this would mean our temporary timetable would be continuing.
From Monday (11 January) in addition to the changes already in operation we will be reducing the frequency of weekday and Saturday services on the Gunnislake line. As this will leave some long gaps in off peak services, we will be providing some replacement bus services. This will only apply to the Gunnislake branch.
The changes will help protect services vital for key workers and essential travel and will mean we continue to operate approximately 80% of our planned timetable.
We will be directly contacting customers who have booked online with us to offer advice and help to switch to other services, or to claim refunds. We are also reminding customers who need to travel to check timetables on https://www.gwr.com/travel-
We will be keeping the timetable under review, particularly given the new national lockdown in England and will work with the Department for Transport on any further changes.
