A competition has been launched to address key challenges faced by UK train operating companies, building on last year’s Railway Operator Challenge Competition (ROCC).
The Rail Safety and Standards Board (RSSB) and the Department for Transport have, through the Train Operator Competition, jointly sought proposals from the rail industry, that if successful they will co-fund, that actively contribute to targets outlined in the Rail Technical Strategy (RTS). These include improving customer experience and capacity whilst reducing cost and carbon. The total fund available is £6 million.
The competition is now officially open for applications and a copy of the brief can be downloaded from the Future Railway website.
Application packs are available from [email protected], after which the full invitation to tender will be issued.
