National Rail Passenger Survey

Spring 2019 Results

Transport Focus, the independent body which monitors the quality of transport services, consults 50,000 passengers a year to produce the National Rail Passenger Survey (NRPS) – a network-wide picture of customer satisfaction with rail travel. Opinions of train services are collected twice a year from a representative sample of journeys.

CrossCountry has targets for 2019. This is based on an average of our performance in two surveys (Spring and Autumn 2018). The Spring results were released in June 2018 and the Autumn results in January 2019.

Passenger information during disruption (PIDD)

PIDD is a coordinated approach by the rail industry to enable the timely and reassuring provision of correct and consistent information to passengers during major disruption/delays so that they can make well-informed travel decisions. The industry has agreed a Code of Practice that sets out high-level guidance about generic good practice for the provision of information to passengers during disruption; a framework that individual train operators can tailor according to local circumstances. This Code of Practice is attached below; followed by CrossCountry's 'PIDD Local Plan' which is our approach to ensuring the PIDD Code of Practice is delivered for our customers. The final attachment below is CrossCountry's 'PIDD Delivery Plan' which is our monthly progress tracker against the industry's list of PIDD initiatives.

In response to action number PIDD-29 the industry undertakes quantitative research to measure the improvement in the quality of information during disruption over time for all rail companies. The attachment to the Executive Summary for the most recent wave of research is below.
