Transport Focus comment on Prime Minister’s northern rail devolution speech in Rotherham

Commenting on the Prime Minister’s northern rail devolution speech in Rotherham, David Sidebottom, director of independent watchdog Transport Focus, said:

“Passengers will welcome the increased focus on their needs and local accountability. They tell us they want a railway they can trust, simple to use and know who is in charge, both locally and nationally.

“However the railway is structured, it must work for all passengers no matter how long or short their journey. The acid test of any changes will be when passengers tell us they are satisfied with the reliability of trains and value for money of their tickets.”
