Northern’s chance to shine with one million £1 rail tickets – The Yorkshire Post says

FIRST impressions do count – and early anecdotal evidence suggests that rail operator Northern’s fleet of trains are now far cleaner as a result of measures that, in fairness, were beginning to be put in place before the Covid pandemic.

Rail operator Northern is making one million tickets available for just £1.

Now the company intends to put that to the test by launching its biggest ever promotion in which one million people will be able to travel on its network for just £1 each between September 6 and October 22 as it tries to tempt passengers back onto the rail network. The offer is only accessible via Northern’s website or app.

As Mark Powles, Northern’s Customer and Commercial Director, says: “It gives our customers the chance to see, first-hand, the palpable improvements we’ve made while they’ve been away. Our trains, stations and ticket buying options have never been better.”
