What we do when things go wrong...

Passenger Information During Disruption (PIDD) are the principles we work to to keep you informed when trains are disrupted. We want to be transparent with our customers, and we publish our own PIDD plan online. It details:

  • what we will do to keep you informed of problems affecting your journey.
  • who does what to get the train service back to normal, and
  • the expected standards that we are working to meet.

The plan is updated annually. The most recent revision was produced in December 2017 to reflect the change to our franchise. Our next annual review will be within 12 months, but may be sooner.

Part of the Rail Delivery Group PIDD Compliance Standards is monitored through a Train Company tracking document. We publish that online too, so you can see what we do to comply with the standards.

How are we measured...

The rail industry wishes to understand better the extent to which each train operator is providing effective communications about disruption to their customers and what improvements might be made. Rail Delivery Group (RDG) undertakes research into how Train Companies are managing Passenger Information During Disruption.
