star this property answer text <p>Government specifies high level capacity requirements and expects the industry to determine appropriate operational solutions based on local demand to deliver these requirements. Where appropriate, this may include providing additional seating capacity in standard class carriages through conversion of first class carriages. While it is not our general policy to require operators to convert first class carriages to standard class, the Government would expect operators to consider the appropriate mix of standard and first class provision in meeting local demand for their services. 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

star this property answer text <p>The Department requires franchised operators to cooperate with each other to ensure that overall, the needs of passengers are met. This includes a requirement to offer a reasonable pattern of service such that connections between services can be made. Where specific connections are identified as being particularly important, the Department may specify their inclusion in franchise bids. Where a connection is required, a balance needs to be struck between allowing sufficient time to change trains, including during delays and maintaining an acceptable end to end journey time.</p> more like this
