Email alerts

We know how frustrating it is to get to your station and find out your train has been delayed or cancelled.

We offer free email travel alerts so you can find out what's going on before you get to the station. 

How do I sign up?

All you need to do is register with us, select the stations you travel to and from and the times you would like to receive the emails. So the alerts are tailored to you and the times you normally travel.

We will alert you at your chosen time, letting you know if there is any disruption affecting your services. So if there are any problems you can make alternative travel arrangements. You can even suspend your emails if you're going on holiday.

Log in If you have already registered and would like to update your alert preferances.
