New machines just the ticket

Have your say

MORE ticket machines are being installed at Sheffield railway station in an attempt to reduce queues at busy times.

East Midlands Trains, which manages the station, is providing six machines for people collecting tickets they have booked in advance.

A spokeswoman for the company, which runs Sheffield to London services, said: “We have already made significant investment in making it even easier for customers to buy their tickets, through the installation of new ticket vending machines at Sheffield station and by developing easier online booking through the launch of our award-winning best fare finder service.

“The installation of six new ticket collection machines at Sheffield, which is one of the first stations to benefit, will help to provide fast and easy access for people wanting to book through our website and then collect their tickets at the station.”
