Train services were initially suspended in western Genoa for around two hours while Italian Rail Network (RFI) assessed the damage. By 13.45 train services had been restored on the Genoa - Savona - Ventimiglia main line, the main line to Turin and Milan had also reopened but with some delays and cancellations of regional services, while the line between Genoa Piazza Principe and Borzoli remained closed.

On August 15, Trenitalia introduced 12 extra shuttle trains in each direction between Genoa Brignole, Piazza Principe and Voltri, and this will be stepped up to 24 trains in each direction on weekdays from August 16 to help relieve road congestion in Genoa.
