Northern’s journey to a better customer experience is gathering pace – with tens of thousands of Advanced Purchase 10p tickets up for grabs.
There are already 15 brand new trains on the Northern network, with more set to follow throughout 2019 and into 2020. And now Northern’s customers are set to benefit from 10p fares on routes across the region.
The new trains, a £500m investment funded by Eversholt, are already providing a step-change in journey experience featuring free WiFi, air conditioning, at seat charging and more spacious and comfortable carriages. Last week, Northern also started the retirement of Pacer trains with the first unit – 142005 – removed from the network.
Now, with the summer coming to a close the focus has turned to giving customers more value with more than 80,000 10p tickets available to those using Northern’s services. Plus kids travel half price, so the youngest customers can enjoy trips out for just 5p.
Tickets can be bought in advance from today, Monday 19 August, while all travel must take place between 1 – 30 September.
David Brown, Northern’s Managing Director, said: “We had an exciting start to the summer with the launch of our first brand new trains. And we continued the great news for customers with the first Pacer retiring.
“Now, with better trains already on the network, we want to celebrate the end of summer with an offer that gives thousands of people outstanding value travel.”
David added: “Tickets for 10p (5p for children) are available when booked in advance through the Northern website or app. No discount codes are needed, simply search for a journey and, if it’s on one of our Advance Purchase routes, you’ll be able to get the reduced rate.”
