Britain’s rail companies working together to benefit you
Buy tickets for any train journey in Britain. We cross more of the country than any other train company.
The new ‘Britain Runs on Rail’ campaign which CrossCountry will be supporting is a great way to see how crucial train travel is for you and the UK.
It is set to make the railways bigger and better with much needed investment to support the ever expanding needs of travelling via train. You may not realise it but the industry as a whole plays a crucial role in our economy.
We will be working with the Rail Delivery Group and Network Rail as well as other train operators to show everyone what we are all doing together to make the railways a more pleasant place to travel on, including improvements to reliability and frequency. This means your journey however big or small will be the best it can be!
