Railways: Yorkshire and the Humber

Volume 474: debated on Thursday 3 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how many train journeys originating in Yorkshire and the Humber in the last 12 months have been made in trains with no more than one carriage; what percentage of the total number of rail journeys in the region this represents; and if she will make a statement. (197433)

The three franchised train operators running services that originate in Yorkshire and the Humber are Northern Rail, TransPennine Express and National Express East Coast. An estimate of the number of journeys made on different types of rolling stock would be a matter for the operators involved.

Northern Rail is the only train operator that runs a one carriage service in Yorkshire and the Humber.
