Have your say on rail service

Have your say

TRAIN passengers in Barnsley are being urged to air their views on public transport services.

Rail users will get the chance to ‘meet the manager’ at the town’s train station on Monday, October 29.

The event, open to all members of the public, is being held to help ensure local people shape the way services are provided.

Participants are also being asked to think of improvements they would like to see as part of the event.

Managers from Northern Rail will be on hand to speak to passengers about any areas of concern they have, or to discuss recent issues they have experienced, such as disruption or overcrowding.

Pete Myers, Northern Rail head of service quality, said: “We realise passengers can be frustrated with delays and cancellations and other issues they may have faced and we welcome them to come and talk to us about them, so we can explain how we are working with our partners to find solutions.

“We would also love to hear from anyone who has suggestions on how services and facilities can be improved at Barnsley or what we’re doing well.”

Customers can have their say at the Barnsley station event from 5pm until 7.30pm.
