Over the next few months Transport Focus will be publishing lots of new research into users’ experiences across rail, roads, bus and tram. Here’s a brief summary of some of our upcoming research.

  • National Rail Passenger Survey: the next wave will be published later this summer (for January 2017 results, see the infographic here).
