Britain’s rail franchise model 'unfit for purpose', say MPs
Parliamentary committee report claims current model is failing train passengers with high fares and poor performance
Britain’s rail franchising model is “no longer fit for purpose” and is failing passengers, MPs have warned.
Private operators are restricted in how much they can improve services and efficiency and their relationship with Network Rail is “not as coordinated as it should be”, leading to higher fares and poor performance, a House of Commons transport select committee report has found.
