consultation on the cross country franchise now open

The Department for Transport are currently consulting stakeholders and passengers on the specification of the next Cross Country franchise, due to start in October 2019.

SLUG will be responding to the parts of the consultation that deals with services in this area and our response will be available on this website once it has been submitted.

However, SLUG thinks that it is important that regular Cross Country passengers have their say on how the franchise is improved over the next few years.  Therefore, we are asking any members who regularly travel on Cross Country trains to consider responding to the consultation as an individual passenger.  You never know – your proposals may be taken seriously.
