Today, TransPennine Express warned passengers not to travel on its services following a high number of cancellations.
The Mayor of West Yorkshire, Tracy Brabin, said:
“It is completely unacceptable that TransPennine Express have told passengers not to travel because they’ve cancelled so many of their services today.
“This is a problem entirely of the company’s own making. I and other Northern Mayors have been calling on Government to put them on notice to improve or have their franchise taken away.
“Government needs to do this now and get an urgent grip. Today’s chaos piles more misery on passengers and will have a major impact on businesses and high streets across our region. In the week before Christmas, this is the last thing they need.”
