HS2 Customer Community

29 September 2020

Many topics have been explored over the past two and a half years with our Customer Community – from stations of the future to autonomous vehicles. A lot of useful insight has been gathered and used to inform the design of the HS2 experience.

Across the board, the following themes ring true:

  •  future passengers continue to expect a higher standard across all aspects of the HS2 journey than what they are currently experiencing on rail
  • technology can enhance passengers’ journeys
  • a staff presence is very important, particularly for those who might feel less confident with technology
  • HS2 is expected to deliver a service that is environmentally sustainable, even though choice ultimately comes down to cost and availability
  • journey personalisation is important; future passengers want HS2 to have a good understanding of their individual needs, and use this to make their journey easier and better.
