The train company, Northern Rail, has resumed full service on the Lakes Line.
Services between Oxenholme and Windermere have recently been hit with a series of cancellations and delays.
For almost eight weeks, all trains were cancelled and replaced with buses.
Operator Northern said timetable changes and driver shortages were to blame.
The company said 75% of services would be resumed on other lines as well, after an attempt to introduce new timetables in May collapsed because the drivers were not available to run the trains.
A compensation scheme has been introduced for affected season ticket holders.
