Helping people make better connections is a key theme for us.

Public transport helps to keep people socially connected, either with existing connections or by fostering new connections in stations or on the train, as they go about their journey.  We are really pleased to be partners with TransPennine Express to , raise awareness of the issue of loneliness, and signpost our customers and colleagues to find support in making social connections. As the global pandemic has forced people to stay at home, now that restrictions are easing, it is more important than ever for people to get together again to reconnect with friends and family.

You can find out more about the journeys you can make with TransPennine Express here.

As well as providing information to support TransPennine staff, we have been helping support customers on their journeys with information available at stations and on their trains across their network.
