Doncaster rail passengers have been given a chance to snap up cheap tickets as First Hull Trains launches its biggest promotion in its 12-year history.

Some 100,000 passengers travel with First Hull Trains every year and tickets to London King’s Cross are available for as little as £10, or First Class for £36.

Jennifer Handley, from First Hull Trains, said: “We’ve had a tremendous year so far, passenger numbers have been quite exceptional and we believe that is testament to the service we provide.

“We’ve had some excellent periods of performance and the National Passenger Survey saw us come out on top – proving we are rated highly by the people that matter most, our customers.

“Now, we want to really finish this year on a high and have started the biggest ticket promotion we have ever managed.

“People all along the route are been given the chance to get their hands on these tickets all day, every day. This isn’t a sale but a rationalisation of our ticketing offer, which will mean passengers can access these price points when they book in advance.

“Many passenger genuinely don’t believe we sell tickets for £10 but there are many available on our services – there isn’t a cheaper way to get to London.”
