Local MP Robert Largan, Cllr Anthony Mckeown, Leader of High Peak Borough Council, and Cllr Barry Lewis, Leader of Derbyshire County Council, have written a joint letter to Nick Donovan, the Managing Director of Northern Rail.
Robert continues his cross-party campaign to maintain the current two trains per hour service on the Manchester-Buxton line.
Following the recommendations of the Manchester Recovery Task Force, Northern and TransPennine Express published proposals for changes to the existing timetable structure of rail services in the High Peak.
In the proposals, the Manchester and Buxton line will be hourly during the off-peak periods, with two trains an hour running during the morning and evening peak periods.
In their joint letter, Robert Largan MP, Cllr Anthony Mckeown, and Cllr Barry Lewis said:
"We are completely opposed to the proposed timetable on the Buxton to Manchester line, which serves Buxton, Dove Holes, Chapel-en-le-Frith, Whaley Bridge, Furness Vale and New Mills Newtown within High Peak.
"The timetable proposes maintaining two trains per hour during peak times but reducing services to once an hour during off-peak times. This would be a significant reduction in services and negatively impact the High Peak.
"We want to see improvements to local services that encourage visitors to the Peak District to travel by public transport rather than by car and enhance the service for our residents who rely on this for access to employment, education, and health services. Reducing rail services on the Buxton line would make this task even more difficult."
