Industrial action during December.
Unfortunately, the RMT union has called a number of strikes for December (the next scheduled dates are Saturday 23 December, Sunday 24 December, Wednesday 27 December and Sunday 31 December.) that will significantly affect CrossCountry train services. We will be operating a reduced service but running some longer trains. Amended timetables will be confirmed nearer to each strike day, so please keep checking this page for details before using any on-line journey planners. Click here for the latest information.
Britain’s rail companies working together to benefit you
Buy tickets for any train journey in Britain. We cross more of the country than any other train company.
‘Britain Runs on Rail’, a campaign which CrossCountry is supporting, is a great way to see how crucial train travel is for you and the UK.
This long-term plan is the best way to deliver a better railway to strengthen the economy, improve services for customers, boost local communities and secure more jobs in rail. You may not realise it but the industry as a whole plays a crucial role in our economy.
Britain’s public and private partnership railway is launching its plan to change and improve for the country’s prosperity. To get there – and be held to account - the partnership railway is committing to Four Vows for change - for our economy, our customers, our communities and our people.
We will be working with the Rail Delivery Group and Network Rail as well as other train operators to show everyone what we are all doing together to make the railways a more pleasant place to travel on, including improvements to reliability and frequency. Together, we will strengthen our economic contribution and deliver innovation and investment to transform services for customers.
This means your journey however big or small will be the best it can be!
