Transport Focus comment on Rail Delivery Group proposals to the Williams Rail Review

Anthony Smith, chief executive of independent watchdog Transport Focus, said:

“Passengers tell Transport Focus they want a railway that is more accountable and simple to use, both locally and nationally, especially for commuter services. It will be passengers who will ultimately judge whether any changes delivers them train services that are more reliable, provide more space to stand or sit, offer a real customer focus and represent better value for money. Transport Focus will examine these proposals closely.”
