At Grand Union we are passionate about Britain’s railways. We are committed to the traditional values of providing a high-quality customer service and comfortable journey experiences at a fair price.
Grand Union has been founded with the primary aim of providing a new customer-focused standard of train service, which challenges and changes the current passenger experience. By providing greater passenger choice through competition with existing franchise holders, new journey opportunities that in turn deliver wider economic benefits, and value for money for rail users and taxpayers, we are confident we can achieve this.
As an independent company, Grand Union’s application for a passenger track access agreement requesting to operate a service on the Carmarthen to London route was approved by the Office of Rail and Road (ORR) in December 2022.
Grand Union has also submitted an application to the ORR to operate a service between Stirling and London Euston via the West Coast Main Line. That application is currently under consideration.
