First publishedon www.ITSInternational.com
Virgin Trains has partnered with Uber to help encourage more people travelling between London and Birmingham to leave their cars at home.
The agreement between the companies allows passengers to request a taxi to the train station and on arrival at their destination.
Passengers will be eligible for 50% off their first Uber journey up to a maximum value of £10. The service will initially be available for journeys between London Euston and Birmingham New Street.
Riders buying a ticket on the Virgin Trains website will have the option to receive an SMS reminder with a link to book an Uber trip to the station and at the end of the train journey.
