To run our franchises with strong financial discipline to deliver sustainable value

Our companies are significant contributors to the UK's public transport infrastructure. Employing 12,000+ people across the country, c.35% of all passenger journeys on the rail network are taken on our services each year.

Public transport is vital to building a strong and sustainable UK economy. Our services ensure that millions of people are able to get to work and can access key services and leisure activities.

Train operators now generate more than four times as much for the Government to reinvest in rail services than 15 years ago. This money is helping to reduce public subsidies and sustain the biggest investment programme in rail in decades.

We carry more commuters into London on our rail franchises than any other operator, accounting for over 40% of peak-time arrivals.
