Commenting on the announcement of a collaboration agreement between the Government and Transport for the East Midlands regarding the management of the East Midlands rail franchise, Darren Shirley, Chief Executive of Campaign for Better Transport, said:
"It's right that the views of passengers and local leaders should be central to decisions about local rail services. This collaboration should be echoed in other areas too, allowing rail to respond to local objectives and needs and passengers' voices to be heard."
