Passenger statistics from the Office of Rail and Road

Flint railway station (Welsh: Y Fflint) serves the town of Flint in Flintshire, North Wales. It located on the North Wales Coast Line and is managed by Transport for Wales, who provide most of the passenger trains that call here. There are certain Avanti West Coast services that serve the station.

In July 2008, Flint station was voted "Best in UK".[2]

Facilities[edit]

The station is staffed through the day, with the ticket office inside the main building on platform 2. A self-service ticket machine is provided for use and for collecting advance purchase tickets. A waiting room is provided on the eastbound side (platform 1), with digital information screens, timetable posters and help points on both platforms. A stepped footbridge connects the two platforms, but step-free access to both sides is provided via a public footpath passing beneath the railway.[3]

Services[edit]

Mondays to Saturdays, the station is served by two main routes, both of which run hourly:[4]

On weekdays, Avanti West Coast operate five trains each way per day between Crewe and Holyhead, one of which runs only to Bangor. On Saturdays there is one train each way per day between London Euston and Holyhead, with two trains each way from Crewe to Holyhead, one of which continues to Birmingham New Street.

On Sundays, there is an hourly service in each direction from mid-morning - eastbound to Crewe and westbound to Holyhead, with two through trains to Manchester and one to Cardiff. There are three trains per day each way between Crewe and Holyhead, one of which continues to London Euston.
