Chance to question new rail franchise

North Tyneside Transport Forum is inviting readers to come and hear the presentation by Neal Smith, of the new Virgin/Stagecoach company, which has replaced East Coast Rail.

This will be on the future of rail travel we can expect from the new franchisee holder, with time for questions.

This event is on Tuesday, March 24, at Whitley Bay Library, York Road, at 5.45pm for tea and coffee, and will last from 6pm till 8pm.

This is the second North Tyneside forum of 2015 and we hope passengers will take the opportunity to attend and also have round table discussion on rail and in addition for the second part of the programme, a question time panel about communication of information on buses, Metro, rail, ferry etc with representatives from those managements.
