Metro is unaffected during the Northern Rail strike on Friday 28th April.

Passengers who use Northern Rail services are being warned to plan ahead and expect disruption on Friday, 28 April as staff at the company hold a one-day strike. Northern expects to run more than 40 per cent of its normal timetable, and more than 300 additional rail replacement buses, to help keep the north of England on the move. All services are expected to be extremely busy, with industrial action taking place on the Friday before the bank holiday weekend and the first day of the Tour de Yorkshire cycle event. People who normally rely on Northern services are being advised to keep checking for updates for news on whether the strike is going ahead and the impact on services. The latest information from Northern can be found here and passengers are advised to follow the train operators’ channels directly for the latest advice.
