Transport for Wales introduces new food and drink ordering system

An array of quality local food and drink is just a click away when traveling on trains between north and south Wales and England.

Transport for Wales is rolling out an at seat ordering system on its Premier services which run between Cardiff, Holyhead and Manchester.

Customers traveling on the service will be able to simply scan a QR code on their seat, select from a menu of Welsh and UK wide produce and a customer host will do the rest.

Paul Otterburn, Catering Operations Manager for TfW said they wanted to make it easy for customers to access the offering.

He said: “When you’re traveling long distance, what could be better than sitting back and watching the world go by with a nice light meal, snack or drink?

“Our premier services have an onboard chef so you can have hot food cooked fresh and brought out to you with a couple of clicks.

“The QR system allows you to have a look at what’s on offer from the comfort of your seat without having to walk through several carriages to the buffet car.”

The QR ordering system will soon be rolled out on Transport for Wales’ brand new fleet of Class 197 trains too. These trains will run across all mainline routes in Wales and along the English border.

This year, Transport for Wales’ catering team has been renamed “Blas”, the Welsh word for Taste. Their ambition is to bring customers a first rate offering of products from local suppliers.
