Description:
Yate railway station serves the town of Yate in South Gloucestershire, in south west England. The station is located on the main Bristol to Birmingham line between Bristol Parkway and Cam & Dursley, and is operated by First Great Western.

The station is staffed on weekday mornings. It has two platforms, separated by the A432 road bridge. An automated ticket machine was installed in mid-2007, but stopped functioning due to vandalism and is reported to be "unlikely to be replaced in the foreseeable future".

History

The Yate station first opened on 8 July 1844 and closed on 4 January 1965. It was reopened on 11 May 1989. It is the start of the Thornbury Branchline, however the passenger stations on this branch have long since closed, and the line only remains to serve Tytherington Quarry.

In the Strategic Rail Authority’s 2007/08 financial year, Yate was ranked as the 1104th most-used station in the UK.

Services

The station is served Monday to Friday by a train every hour in both directions to/from Gloucester and Westbury (with 2-hourly extensions to/from Worcester & Great Malvern, and to/from Portsmouth & Weymouth). There have been arguments to create services to/from Bristol every half hour.
