E-tickets for Grand Central

Yorkshire and north-east England train operator Grand Central Rail has joined the trend towards introducing e-ticketing as a purchase option for passengers, allowing them to buy tickets online and display them on their mobile or tablet devices.

The company says the move saves time as passengers will no longer have to queue at stations or wait for tickets to be delivered. After paying the fare online, customers receive an email with a downloadable PDF and barcode for scanning by crew and ticket gates.

The service is now available on desktop and mobile devices and is valid for advance fares up to 2hr before departure. Managing director Richard McClean said: “E-ticketing is environmentally friendly, and gives passengers a fast and efficient way of storing their tickets.”

Grand Central runs five services daily between Sunderland and London King's Cross calling at Hartlepool, Eaglescliffe, Northallerton, Thirsk and York. 

There are also four daily Yorkshire – London services between Bradford Interchange and King's Cross via Low Moor, Halifax, Brighouse, Mirfield, Wakefield Kirkgate, and Doncaster. Some services also call at Pontefract Monkhill.
