Integrated Rail Plan – Transport Focus response

18 November 2021

Responding to the Integrated Rail Plan, Transport Focus chief executive Anthony Smith, said:

“For public transport to become a choice for more people and to help meet Government decarbonisation targets, sustained investment in the North and the Midlands must continue. It’s vital that this investment delivers benefits for the most people as quickly as possible.

“Ultimately passengers will judge the success of these plans on the extent to which they meet their priorities for improvement: more punctual, reliable services, increased capacity and the chance of getting a seat on the train.”
