Virgin trains handed extra three-year deal for Milton Keynes Central



Have your say

A new deal that secures Virgin trains serving Milton Keynes Central on the West Coast Mainline for a further three years has been signed.

It’s been announced today the government handed Virgin the three-year deal today, which will see free wifi coming to standard carriages and - at long last - the number of first class carriages will be reduced in order to free up an extra 5,500 standard seats a day across the franchise.

Andrew Pakes, Labour & Co-operative Parliamentary Candidate for Milton Keynes South, wants to see the franchise system reformed to provide a public service test with transparency over costs and value for money for passengers.
