Countdown begins as Transport for Wales sets to takeover from Arriva Trains Wales
Transport for Wales is preparing for a new era on the Wales and Borders as they take over from Arriva Trains Wales on Sunday 14th October 2018.
The new train operator says that by 2023, 95% of passengers’ journeys will take place on new, higher capacity trains and there will also be 285 extra services every weekday.
A “rail map” of the improvements to be made has been published and contains the details of the improvements that will be made by 2025.
The improvements include new and improved stations, better services, more carriages, new and completely rebuilt trains, better-value fares, pay-as-you-go travelcards, free Wi-Fi, improved accessibility for those with mobility problems at all stations, and new websites and apps to help passengers stay informed and buy tickets easily.
