Transpennine Route Upgrade East of Leeds Alliance

Transpennine Route Upgrade (TRU) aims to deliver faster, longer, more frequent and more reliable services across the north of England, from Newcastle, Hull and York towards Manchester and Liverpool via Leeds. 

The aim of the TRUe Alliance is to transform the East of Leeds route allowing people to travel faster, more reliably and in greater comfort between the North’s great cities. Providing passengers with more choice, more seats and better facilities on a safer, cleaner, more environmentally friendly railway.

  • Within our Alliance we are firm believers that you cannot achieve that which you do not make visible. We are aware that the rail industry lags behind in aspects of diversity and inclusion and we are committed to changing this. Through supporting Women in Rail and participating in the Big Rail Diversity Challenge we are showing that we equally value all our team members and that anyone can achieve anything they put their minds to.
