Transport Focus welcomes Select Committee report into rail timetable changes

Commenting on the Transport Select Committee’s Rail timetable changes: May 2018 report Anthony Smith, chief executive of the independent watchdog Transport Focus, said:

“This industry knows it must deliver a smooth set of changes when the next round of timetable changes takes effect this Sunday. They must show they’ve learned lessons after a torrid summer of timetable crisis, and are acting to improve performance.

“Looking to the future Transport Focus believes someone has to be placed clearly in charge of timetable changes.

“Passengers also expect the Government’s Rail Review to address how their railways are run, in order to deliver sustained improvements in day to day performance and better value for money. Nothing less will rebuild public trust in the railway.”
