As we first mentioned more than a year ago now, First are opening a new Travel Centre on Castle Meadow. After months of preparation and work, the shop is now pretty much complete and will open its doors on Monday 25th January.
Inside, customers will benefit from two large monitors displaying live departure times and information, whilst passing customers can see a large monitor with a promotional media slideshow. Notably, the company have acquired one of the 'GoGo Dragons' to display in the shop, although it is not the 'Dragon' which First sponsored during the city-wide display last Summer.
Apart from this, there are all the resources you would expect from a travel centre, including an information desk and a timetable rack. To resolve the issue of the shop floor being a few steps up from ground level, a stair-lift has been fitted for disabled visitors.
