“Being only steps from York train station puts us at a unique advantage, allowing for a seamless journey for our guests who travel to us via rail. We can see first-hand the considerable benefits that rail brings to our city, and we very much look forward to welcoming a return to normal service, and the perks it generates for our local economy and communities.”
“The pandemic has really taken its toll on small businesses, not just in Bath but throughout the country. A return to rail will have an immensely positive impact on the fortunes of our business and many others in the area. I’m excited for the next chapter and to help many more people discover this fabulous city using their tastebuds.”
“A lot of people dont' come by car anymore, they want to use public transport and rail is the perfect way of getting to Manchester. Once people feel freer to travel on the network, the connections are already very good, I think we'll see a sharp increase in business for Manchester, so a very positive future ahead.”
