INVITATION Easier Rail Fares Consultation – Business Day 2018 Thursday 26 July
26th July 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Message on behalf of Robert Nisbet – Regional Director, Rail Delivery Group
I am delighted to invite you to the Easier Rail Fares Consultation – Business Day which is taking place on Thursday 26 July. Decades of well-intentioned but outdated regulation have remained largely unchanged since they were introduced and have led to a range of fare options that have not kept pace with technology or how people work and travel today. That’s why we partnered with Transport Focus on the easier fares consultation, which seeks to understand what customers, stakeholders, and businesses want to see from an up to date, simpler and easier fares and ticketing system.
Our Business Day will be a chance for you to hear from our Head of Fares and Retail Support, Andy Wakeford, on Britain’s fares system and how it can be updated to make fares simpler for our customers. During the event, you will have the opportunity to share your views and questions on how fares regulation can be updated and what you would like to see on the proposals included on the final report we will make to governments with options for fares reform.
Details for the day can be found below: Date: Thursday 26 July Start: 10:00 Finish: 12:00 Venue: Hampton room, Landmark space, 200 Aldersgate Street, London EC1A 4HD
