It has been confirmed that train services from Bedford to Bletchley will resume from next week as national lockdown measures ease further.
The Marston Vale Line, which is operated by London Northwestern Railway, will be resuming on Monday April 12th.
Rail replacement buses have been operating on the line between Bedford and Bletchley during the latest period of lockdown, with passenger numbers extremely low.
However, with shops, gyms and community centres preparing to open their doors, London Northwestern Railway will reintroduce a limited number of trains during the morning and afternoon peak periods from Monday to Saturday.
London Northwestern Railway says that rail replacement buses will continue to run at other times.
Lawrence Bowman, customer experience director for London Northwestern Railway, said: "With lockdown measures easing further, now is the right time to reintroduce trains to the Marston Vale Line to help our passengers travel with confidence.
"We encourage passengers using the train to maintain social distancing on board and remind all customers that everyone aged over 11 must wear a face covering by law, unless exempt on medical grounds."
Passengers are advised to check their train times before setting out, and to minimise travel in line with the latest Government guidance.
