Connecting Journeys

Starting, and finishing, your journey with another operator

Connecting your journey

We provide regular services between London King's Cross, Stevenage, Newcastle, Morpeth and Edinburgh Waverley – but we realise many of our customers will need to make a connection to start or finish their journey with us, whether that’s just a quick bus or tube trip, or a longer connection on another train.  We have a selection of connecting journeys available and are currently working with various transport operators to enable you to buy a through ticket for your whole journey, but, in the meantime you may need to buy a separate ticket for the part of your journey which isn’t with us (and will often be cheaper than buying a through ticket that’s not a Lumo ticket).

Local connecting tickets available through Lumo

Through train tickets available though Lumo

For some journeys you can also buy a through ticket with Lumo and another Train Operating Company for one great low fare.  These fares will either be Advance (which works in the same way as a LumoFixed fare) or Anytime, and can be used with Lumo and the other relevant operator.  Operators we currently have joint ticket with currently include:

  • South Western Railway for journeys to/from stations including Woking, Guildford, Basingstoke, Southampton and Portsmouth.
  • TransPeninne Express for journeys to/from stations including Chester-le-Street and Durham.

We’ll update this list when more connections become available.
