Trains between Stansted Airport, Cambridge and the Midlands will run hourly once again after more than a year of Covid-19 disruption, but trains will still skip Audley End.
CrossCountry said that passengers can expect hourly trains south of Cambridge from Sunday, May 16 for the first time since last April.
A spokesperson for CrossCountry said: "We anticipate more people returning to rail over the coming months and need to make space available for them to travel until such time as social-distancing measures are eased."
CrossCountry also said it will introduce 80 additional seats to its trains on the line, but only a quarter of seats are available with social distancing in place.
Audley End calls by CrossCountry remain suspended to keep trains running on time for those who need to travel.
