Did you know that rail represents one of the most cost-effective ways of reaching your target audience? 

Covering the whole of the North of England, Northern operates over 2,800 services, across a network of over 450 stations.  In 2019 footfall across our network was 150m. From daily commuters to shoppers, leisure travellers and students, these millions of customers interact with us every day, giving you unprecedented access to a large and diverse audience.

With an exciting range of channels at our disposal, brands can connect with travellers at every point within their journey – before travel, at the station and on the train.

Featured throughout the station, on entry and exit and on platforms this traditional form of advertising creates a great impact for lingering customers as they wait for their train.
