First Transpennine Express is a British train operating company owned by FirstGroup that operates the TransPennine Express franchise. It runs regional and intercity rail services between the major cities of Northern England and Scotland.
The TransPennine Express routes are subdivided into three operations:
(1) North TransPennine, which includes all routes that pass through the core section between Manchester Piccadilly and Leeds
(2) TransPennine North West, which consists of services on the West Coast Main Line
(3) South TransPennine, which includes services running on the Hope Valley line and the South Humberside Main Line.
Transpennine Express run trains 24 hours a day, including through New Year's Eve night, whilst Transpennine Express trains run between York, Leeds and Manchester Airport at least every three hours every night of the week.
Splitting Your Train Tickets on Transpennine Express Trains is allowed and is when you purchase separate tickets for two or more sectors of the Transpennine Express Trains rail route you wish to travel instead of just one more expensive through ticket without affecting your travel options in any way.
For example, if you wanted to travel on Transpennine Express Trains from Station A to Station D, you would expect to buy a ticket direct from A to D. However, you may find it a lot cheaper to buy a ticket from A to B, and another from B to C and still another from C to D for a cheaper combined train ticket price. This is especially true when not all sectors of your journey are during peak time.
So, by buying several tickets that in combination make up your whole Transpennine Express Trains route, you could massively reduce your travel cost and you will still travel on the same Transpennine Express train, at the same time and most probably in the same seat but pay a lot less by using split tickets. This is what split ticketing on Transpennine Express Trains is all about.
You may use split train tickets for travel on all Transpennine Express.
