Operators are expected to communicate this to passengers in good time where possible, and to provide affected passengers with advice on the alternative options to complete their journey.</p><p> </p><p>Officials meet regularly with GTR to discuss performance and the operator has confirmed that it tries to protect stations like Arlesey where there are no alternative modes of transport.

This is available from Table 1308 at the link below:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/transport-expenditure-tsgb13" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/transport-expenditure-tsgb13</a></p><p> </p><p>Please note this table gives absolute changes in the indices and covers 1987 to 2017.</p><p> </p><p>(d) The costs of travelling by air are not available from ONS data. However, DfT estimates are available based on fare data collected from the Civil Aviation Authority passenger survey from 2000. The real cost of the average UK one-way air fare, including taxes and charges, covering domestic flights from 2010 to 2017 decreased by 22%. From 2015 to 2017 the real cost decreased by 7%.</p><p><strong> </strong></p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>This information is not available. Total greenhouse gas emissions for each mode of transport are published in Transport Statistics Great Britain table ENV0201: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/energy-and-environment-data-tables-env" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/energy-and-environment-data-tables-env</a>. Total emissions for each transport mode are calculated using various methodologies and data sources. Due to the differences in data sources and calculation methods, it is currently not possible to disaggregate total emissions in a way that allows the calculation of comparable average passenger emissions for the different transport modes. The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy does produce conversion factors for use in company reporting, covering a full range of activities which produce greenhouse gas emissions, although these figures are not statistically evidential.</p> more like this
