Statement in response to East Coast ticket office opening hours
A National Express East Coast spokesperson said, “We are proposing to make some minor changes to ticket office opening hours. Customers will still be able to buy tickets when our services are running.
“The TSSA union have made some claims that are factually incorrect including ‘late night revellers being unable to buy tickets at Kings Cross’. The station is actually closed from 0100 – 0500. The last train departs at 23.30 and the proposed changes will see the ticket office closing at this time. The first train departs Kings Cross at 0600, and the ticket office will open at 05.00.
“Any job losses which may result from these changes are already included in the previously announced 750 redundancies.”
