c2c Delivery Director Kevin Frazer said: “We know that the Easter getaway is a popular time to travel, but that some people will find their options are more limited this year. That’s why we’re putting on extra services and longer trains on Bank Holiday Monday in particular, to help passengers get to where they want to go to. Following its success in previous years, we are also running our great value ‘kids for a quid’ offer again on weekdays during the school holidays.”
