star this property answer text <p>We are working with train operators inside and outside of London, including through franchising arrangements, so that they maintain or increase the number of the stations which have been awarded ‘Secure Station’ status. The Secure Stations scheme is managed by the Department for Transport (DfT) and British Transport Police (BTP), and sets station design and management standards. It is aimed at:</p><p> </p><ul><li>preventing and reducing crime and disorder, providing a safer environment for passengers and staff;</li><li>increasing passenger numbers;</li><li>reducing costs of repair following vandalism, graffiti, etc., and of lost staff time due to distress or injury.</li></ul><p> </p><p>DfT is also currently working with the BTP to review and refresh the Secure Stations scheme to ensure that it continues to drive up standards, covers wider aspects of station security and that it reflects recent changes to the operating structure of the rail industry.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Performance benchmarks were set for the entire Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR) franchise, not by constituent business groups, e.g. Southern. Since Rail Industry period 7 in financial year 2015/16 (ending mid October 2015), GTR exceeded the breach level for the Cancellations benchmark. Last year the then Secretary of State issued GTR with a Remedial Plan Notice requiring them to set out the measures they will take in order to improve their performance. The then Secretary of State has published the Remedial Plan and it includes benchmarks against which GTR are measured for the duration of the Plan.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Access for All programme has delivered accessible step-free routes at over 150 stations since 2006, with smaller scale access improvements at more than 1,500 stations. To build on this success, we made a further £160m available to extend the programme, providing step-free routes at a further 68 stations. This is in addition to access improvements delivered as part of other major projects, such as Crossrail which will deliver step-free routes at another 40 stations. No decision has been made on the overall rail funding package, including funding for accessibility improvements, for Control Period 6 (2019-2024).</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Department for Transport has not made any assessment of passenger satisfaction levels in regards to light rail. However, Transport Focus, an independent transport user watchdog, published results in May 2016 which indicated overall journey satisfaction in 2015 had increased to 92% from 90% the previous year. This follows a survey conducted of over 5,000 passengers who had used light rail systems in operation in Blackpool, Manchester, Birmingham, Nottingham, Sheffield and Edinburgh.</p><p>A copy of the Transport Focus report can be found at the following weblink:</p><p><a href="http://www.transportfocus.org.uk/research-publications/research/tram-passenger-survey/" target="_blank">http://www.transportfocus.org.uk/research-publications/research/tram-passenger-survey/</a></p> more like this

However, when – as is the case for the revised timetable which came into effect on Southern and Gatwick Express services on 11 July a revised timetable has been introduced to mitigate the impact of official and unofficial industrial action – no consultation is required. GTR has an overriding obligation to act in the overall interests of passengers and to take all reasonable measures to avoid or reduce the impact of any disruption.</p> more like this
