Platform X is the start-up accelerator from Virgin Trains and Virgin StartUp. We’re looking for innovative businesses that want to scale and to work with us to improve the passenger experience of train travel.  

Virgin Trains has set four challenges for businesses to look at solving. Here’s challenge number one: Improving the "end-to-end" journey. Watch the video below to find out more about this challenge.

 

Platform-X: Challenge 1 - Improving the “End-to-End” Journey

 

Key Takeaways

  • The end-to-end journey challenge is all about making life easier and simplier for customers. Customers don’t just go from one station to another – the journey starts at their front door. So how can we make that journey as good as possible?
  • This challenge is a real opportunity for Virgin Trains to differentiate themselves from the competition and make real inroads in increasing customer numbers;
  • A key thing is simplicity – the team want an idea that will make them think “Why didn’t we think of this before?”.
