Mid Hants Link update

Written on 19thJanuary 2011 by

GO! Co-operative Limited trading as GO-OP, a multi-stakeholder sustainable travel co-operative, has today announced that for technical reasons, the company has been unable to complete the planned testing programme as scheduled before placing the vehicle into public service.

GO-OP is committed to providing high quality public service and will not commence the trial until it is completely satisfied that it can deliver a reliable operation. The company expects that the service will now commence on 31 January and this will be confirmed at least a week in advance.

Chris Phillimore, Business Development Director for GO-OP, added: “To date, GO-OP has received an overwhelmingly positive response to the proposed service. There has been significant interest from the public and pending the early resolution of these short-term technical issues, we remain committed to delivering a high quality rail service for customers of the Mid Hants Link.”
