East Midlands Trains confirmed plans to reinstate two commuter services
Commuters in Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire left stranded by planned timetable changes have won their battle against East Midlands Trains.
Two services from Nottingham to Bottesford in Leicestershire were due to be suspended next month.
The changes would have left commuters without rush-hour services for six months.
The decision to reinstate the services follows meetings between rail bosses, passengers and local MPs.
Tim Shoveller, managing director for East Midlands Trains, said: "We've listened to all the concerns raised, and have subsequently carried out detailed counts of the number of passengers using our services to travel home from work in Nottingham.
"These updated figures do show that an increasing number of residents rely on the 1750 GMT and 1845 GMT services, and for that reason, we have made the decision to put them back in the December timetable.
"Whilst last minute changes to the timetable can have an impact on factors such as performance, the strength of feeling from the commuters has been such that we wanted to do something at the earliest opportunity. "
