Greater Anglia will run two special additional trains for Peterborough football fans travelling to and from Ipswich Town’s Portman Road stadium on Saturday 10 December.

Before the match, alongside the normal timetabled services, Greater Anglia will run an additional service which will leave Peterborough at 09.04 (calling at Whittlesea, March and Ely) and arrive in Ipswich at 10.39.

After the match, Greater Anglia will run an additional service which leaves Ipswich at 15.05 (calling at Ely, March and Whittlesea) and arrives in Peterborough at 16.41.

James Steward, Greater Anglia Area Customer Service Manager, said: “We always try and support local events if we can. We know this match is very important to many of our customers, which is why we’re running additional trains.

“To save time and beat the queues, passengers are advised to buy tickets online or via the Greater Anglia app before they travel. Groups of three of more people can save a third on fares with GroupSave.

“Our new trains are longer and have more seats, however we would ask everyone to be patient while boarding as we are expecting higher than usual passenger numbers on these services.”
