East Midlands Parkway is celebrating its third birthday.
Record numbers of passengers have used the station in the last year. Since 2009, the station’s first year of operation, the number of passengers travelling from East Midlands Parkway has increased by almost 120 per cent, soaring to around 450,000 journeys.
The station, at Ratcliffe-on-Soar in Nottinghamshire, is connected to London, Derby, Leicester, Nottingham and Sheffield.
Says Marc Turley, commercial director of East Midlands Trains, ‘Since the opening of East Midlands Parkway in January 2009, we’ve seen the number of passengers using the station steadily growing as more and more people become aware of its convenient location, easy parking and fast links to London.’
