    How, in practice, does a wheelchair user travel on a DOO service?

    I wish tocs would send their senior management out in wheelchairs over the network. So they can see how hard it can be to navigate . It would refocus priorities certainly.

    Rail Franchises to be Replaced with Fixed Fee Contracts

    There were many businesses where work couldn't be done from home. And not essential work. Who furloughed their staff not because of government/train advice. But because it was either impossible for the job to be done safely or because business dried up as a result of lockdown. I know people who...

    Invoicing NR for bus fare

    You could try contacting the tocs customer service department there might be issues if they laid on alternative transport or there was ticket acceptance with local buses /other operators . You will likely need the bus ticket and original rail ticket as evidence of your claim

    There was a thread on here about a year ago of gtr accusing someone of committing delay repay fraud. There only evidence was a lot of (subsequently turned out to be valid ) delay repay claims. Iirc it wasn't even that unusual a journey. It was something like Milton Keynes to Shepherd's Bush...

    Rail Franchises to be Replaced with Fixed Fee Contracts

    Concessions are by no means a guaranteed revenue stream. If the operator performs lower than their bid costs modelled for they could lose a load of money. They only get paid for the services they run and recieve potentially unlimited fines for service failingsm even when those service failings...

    360/2: Final weekend on Paddington - Heathrow

    I don't think it was the team maintaining them that was the problem , it was the fact that TfL Rail took over their operation relatively late in the day, so they were being ran down in preperation for the class 345s to take them over. From a passenger perspective. The inter-carriage doors no...
