unstar this property answer text <p>East Coast has conducted some limited analysis on the effect of converting first to standard class carriages on the franchise. Their analysis shows that standard class is not currently capacity constrained. As such, they consider that there is no immediate demand for more standard class carriages and, especially considering the upcoming introduction of the new InterCity Express trains, such a conversion is not likely to provide the best outcome for East Coast passengers or taxpayers.</p> more like this

The industry is free to consider initiatives which meet the overall requirements of the Department for Transport's specification. This may include providing additional seating capacity in standard class carriages through conversion of first class carriages. In the case of the recent Virgin West Coast and First Great Western Direct Awards, the Government has contracted with the operators to provide additional capacity in this way.</p> more like this

The Thameslink, Southern and Great Northern (TSGN) rail franchise includes an obligation to introduce carnet-based season tickets on smartcards by 30 September 2015. The Essex Thameside franchise includes a similar obligation to introduce flexible season tickets and carnets. We plan to trial flexible ticketing through a combination of research and analysis, as well as evaluation of data from these flexible ticketing schemes. Conclusions around price, flexibility, the impacts on operator revenue and other ticket prices will be central to any decisions on wider roll-out.</p> more like this
