Most Greater Anglia services to operate again from Monday 6 July

Greater Anglia is re-introducing most of its scheduled services from Monday 6 July – increasing the number of seats available on weekdays by over 46,000, as more people are due to return to work as the lockdown is eased further.

The train company is re-introducing a full timetable on most services, although the Stansted Express and Norwich-London intercity service will still operate at a reduced frequency to normal.

Greater Anglia joins Sunflower scheme to help people with hidden disabilities

Greater Anglia has signed up to the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Lanyard scheme so that passengers with hidden disabilities can get the help they need when travelling.

The train operator last year launched its own ‘Offer Me a Seat’ badges so that people with hidden disabilities could travel on their trains more comfortably.

Now it has gone further and partnered the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower initiative and will keep stocks of the lanyards and ID cards at its main staffed stations so that they can be given out to those who need them.
