Rail replacement buses

When there are problems with train services, a bus service may replace the train. Find out where to catch the replacement bus if your train has been cancelled.

If your train is replaced by a bus service, the local train operator will try to stop as near to the station as possible.

Every effort is made to inform passengers of pick-up or drop-off points at stations. Some stations display posters showing the pick-up / drop-off points.
