Virgin Trains has been serving the people of Manchester for over two decades, proud of its record of challenging the status quo – from introducing tilting Pendolino trains, to a pioneering automated delay repay scheme and becoming the first franchised rail operator to offer m-Tickets for all ticket types.
Employing over 700 people in the city, Virgin Trains is committed to delivering a high speed, high frequency service, offering shorter journey times, more comfortable travel and excellent customer service. This has led to a doubling of passenger numbers, with over 5m journeys made to and from Manchester Piccadilly in the last year.
Visitors will be able to discover two Virgin Trains Bees as they explore the trail, with help from the Bee in the City app, unlocking exciting rewards in the process.
Ady Crymble, Customer Experience Manager for Virgin Trains in Manchester enthused:
“We’re incredibly excited to BEE on board. It will bring added life and energy to the city centre, connecting the wider community and showcasing all that is good about Manchester.”
“It will provide a massive boost for the local community, putting a smile on peoples’ faces whilst raising money for such a worthy cause, and rest assured we will be looking to add a bit of Virgin Trains fun to the celebration this summer.”
