Does anyone know how staff travel will work on the new GBR? Currently we can travel on our parent companies franchises for example, if you work for Scotrail, you can travel free on West Midlands and EMR etc as they are all under the Abellio umbrella. This will change as the railway becomes one again. Will non safeguarded employees be able to use any train in the future?
I somehow think this will not be the case.

In short, no. No one can say with any certainty what RST entitlement will look like under GBR, other than existing "safeguarded" staff will keep their boxes as a minimum.
For the rest of us, what they call TOC NEs - our travel isn't contractually guaranteed and they can, in essence, do what they like.


For now anything else will just be speculation.
