“We are always looking for ways to make travelling with us easier and more attractive to passengers.

“’My Journeys’ will bring huge benefits, once registered, people are able to create a personalised area and quickly access a vast array of information directly relevant to them. We’ll also be able to provide them with offers and news of interest to them. For example, we have been able to send the 13,000 people who have already registered with us information relating to our new improved timetable, launched on 14 December and the improvements that it will bring for them.”

“We hope it will encourage more people to make us their first choice for travel and for finding their travel information.”
