Watchdog Report Outlines Passenger Praise For Hull Trains

© Hull Trains

Rail passengers have rated Hull Trains as one of UK’s best operators in a national report compiled by the independent transport user watchdog, Transport Focus. 

The open access operator received an overall satisfaction level of 92% in the annual National Rail Passenger Survey Autumn 2019 – an impressive 10% higher than the UK average of 82%.

This score is an improvement in the last twelve months, having reached 91% in the league table Autumn 2018, and positions Hull Trains as the second-best, long-distance operator in the country and the third best operator nationally. 

Hull Trains saw a marked improvement in: improving connections with other train services (resulting in an 8% rise in comparison to 2018 figures), usefulness of information about delays (a 9% increase), how well the company deals with delays (a 7% increase) and value for money of ticket price (a 5% increase).

Anne Somers, commercial and customer experience director for Hull Trains said the watchdog’s results were valued by the industry because the ratings were based on customer experience.  

“To be recognised as one of the best performing rail operators by the people who use our services is a fantastic achievement for us,” she said. 

“We enhanced our performance in several categories and beat our long-distance competitors in every category except for one – frequency of the trains. Since the survey was completed, we have been rolling out our Paragon fleet which has significantly improved reliability, so we look forward to the next set of results where we would expect to see further improvements. 

“We transport more than one million passengers a year and we are lucky to have such a loyal customer base who continue to support us. These results are testament to the hard work of our staff who continue to go over and above for our customers; we’re really proud to be named as one of the best operators on the rail network.”

Massive Customer Satisfaction Gains For Train Operator GWR

New trains help deliver 8% improvement in train satisfaction says new report

New trains have helped drive an 8% improvement in customer satisfaction and a massive 13% rise in satisfaction with train punctuality for train company Great Western Railway.
 
Customer satisfaction has risen to 86% and an 8% improvement on last year’s autumn results for GWR according to the National Rail Passenger Survey from independent passenger watchdog, Transport Focus.
 
Surpassing last Autumn’s report, the sustained improvements do not even take into account the biggest timetable change in a generation, which occurred after fieldwork for the report had been completed.
 
GWR has attributed the figures to the investment in new and upgraded trains, modernised, more reliable infrastructure and the continued hard work of colleagues, as their commitment to deliver improvements for customers begins to pay off.

The company has completed its rollout of two new fleets of trains in the last two years, including its Intercity Express Trains on long distance services and Electrostar trains in the Thames Valley, which have provided around 25% more seats on some routes. Cascaded trains have also added capacity across the West of England and the South West too.
 
The official figures show customers reported not only an 8% increase in overall satisfaction but a 10% improvement in overall satisfaction with the trains they use, an 8% increase in the frequency of trains, an 8% increase in the availability of staff on trains and 12% increase in the usefulness of information when the company had to deal with delays.

The report shows GWR also improved in the provision of information on board, a key driver of customer satisfaction; the level of crowding and journey length.
 
GWR Interim Managing Director Matthew Golton said:
 
“I am delighted that the hard work, by GWR and our industry colleagues is paying off and this is now being recognised by the majority of our customers; many of whom are enjoying the benefit of new trains and much more reliable infrastructure.
 
“Clearly our work doesn’t stop here, and we continue discussions with the Government on their priorities and focus beyond the end of the current franchise in March.”
 
“While the last few years has seen a real transformation to the Great Western network, the job is far from over. In December we launched our new timetable providing faster journey times; more seats and more frequent services, and we would like to keep building on that work.” 
 
Fieldwork for the NRPS Autumn 2019 report was conducted during September and October 2019. Since then GWR has implemented the most significant timetable change on its network in a generation.

Transport Focus today (28 January) released figures for its twice yearly National Rail Passenger Survey (NRPS) for Autumn 2019. The National Rail Passenger Survey reveals that Grand Central was the best long distance operator for the ninth time, scoring 94%. The York-based open access operator was also rated best overall for value for money, scoring 75%, compared with a national average of 47% and a long distance average of 56%.


Grand Central has recently completed its £9million Adelante train refurbishment programme, an area which has seen significant increases in satisfaction levels. With regards to train upkeep, there was a 14% year on year increase, with the operator scoring 92% satisfaction. Interior cleanliness rose 11% year on year, with a customer satisfaction level of 94%, and the availability of power sockets saw passenger satisfaction levels increase by 14% year on year to 87%.


Richard McClean, Managing Director at Grand Central, said: “We’re absolutely delighted that once again we’ve been named as the number one long distance train company in the country with a score of 94% and to be rated best for overall value for money at 75%.

“What matters to our customers matters to us – a good service at a good price. We’re proud of our track record and our commitment to customer experience, but we can always do more to deliver more benefits for our passengers and great quality services at the heart of communities we serve.


“We have just completed the £9million refurbishment of our entire fleet of trains. We’re also bringing additional services to our North East route and will launch our new route from Blackpool to Euston in Spring 2020.


“Together with investments in online systems and our £2.6million station investment programme across our North East and West Riding routes, we’re confident that our customers will continue to see improving benefits to travelling on our services.”
