Train operator East Coast is offering passengers and stakeholders a new opportunity to put questions, comments or suggestions about its services directly to its key decision makers.
Any aspect of East Coast’s service will be open for discussion during a new series of online live forums, which will give passengers and stakeholders the chance to communicate directly with East Coast’s directors and senior managers in real time at: www.talk.eastcoast.co.uk.
The forum will be held between 12.00 and 15.00 on Tuesday, 24 January 2012, and will cover services and stations in the North Nottinghamshire, Yorkshire and south Durham regions of East Coast’s route, including East Coast travel from Retford, Doncaster, Wakefield, Leeds, Bradford, Skipton, Harrogate, Hull, York, Northallerton and Darlington stations.
Passengers who begin their journey at these stations and wish to take part can do so, using any computer connected to the internet, via any internet browser. There are just four easy steps to join East Coast’s live forum:

East Coast Managing Director Karen Boswell said: “We’re very much looking forward to hearing first hand from our customers and stakeholders, on what we do well now and where we could do better.
“Every piece of constructive feedback from the online forum we receive will be highly valuable to us and will receive a response from the most appropriate director or senior manager. We hope many of our customers and stakeholders will take the opportunity to give us their views.”
