Merseyrail Scoops Top Regional Score in National Rail Passenger Survey Once Again.
This is another great set of results, and it’s especially pleasing to see that we’re doing better at communicating on the train with customers.
Merseyrail achieved an overall score of 91 per cent in the National Rail Passenger Survey, spring 2015, published last week, retaining the title as top regional performer. The figure is 15 percentage points more than the national average, six percentage points higher than the regional average, and one percentage point above the last poll in autumn 2014.
The bi-annual survey is conducted by independent consumer watchdog, Transport Focus, and is a respected industry barometer.
We achieved higher scores in well over half of the 37 comparable factors than in the previous survey (autumn 2014) and results were significantly higher than last autumn’s in several areas related to staff on the train and information provided on the train.
