ATOC


Responding to the publication of the latest rail performance data covering the four weeks from 03 February to 02 March, a spokesperson for the Association of Train Operating Companies (ATOC) said: “These latest figures show that on average more than nine out of ten trains arrived as planned, as train companies continue to work hard with the rest of the industry to improve performance for passengers. “But we’re not complacent and we will continue to focus our efforts on providing passengers with the service they expect and deserve.”
