Neil Micklethwaite, Customer Experience and Commercial Director for East Midlands Trains, said: “Our customers are at the heart of everything we do; from the £13million investment in customer improvements announced earlier this month, to the 89% passenger satisfaction score we received in the latest independent survey by Transport Focus.
“National Customer Service Week is our chance to celebrate these successes, learn how we can continue to improve and say a massive thank you to our customers.
“There will be special prizes, giveaways and money can’t buy experiences at Nottingham station as well as on our trains and at other stations right across our network. We are really looking forward to celebrating with our customers and anyone travelling with us should keep their eyes peeled for great news and fantastic opportunities to enjoy something a little different!”
