New rail punctuality measures will help restore passenger trust

22 March 2019

Responding to new punctuality measures for train journeys published by the Rail Delivery Group today (22 March), Darren Shirley, Chief Executive of Campaign for Better Transport, said:

"This is a welcome move and one which is long overdue. Passengers should be able to board a train and know that they will arrive at their destination on time. Far too many trains are late, and if these new punctuality measures lead to a reduction in late running trains, that that is a good thing for passengers and a good thing for the rail industry. Passengers' trust in the railways has been eroded in recent years, but this new measure will go some way to restoring that faith."

ENDS
