Indeed,following consultation with its disability advisors, the Department for Transport has set out for the industry the work that must be completed to enable each fleet to operate after 2019. Whether to make that investment is a decision for the vehicle owners along with the bidders for the future Northern and TransPennine franchises, noting that some of the current fleet is expected to be displaced by electric units as a result of the Government's extensive programme of electrification in Northern England.</p><p> </p><p>The whole of the TransPennine fleet already meets current access standards, as does nine per cent of the Northern fleet. Work to make a further 36 per cent of Northern's vehicles fully accessible formed part of the recent directly awarded franchise agreement.</p> more like this
