Have your say on the future of the railway at RAIL’s exclusive webinars

RAIL’s much anticipated new webinar series will begin later this month, with a focus on the key changes that need to be made to ensure the railway’s success in the next two, ten, and 30 years.

The relevant outcomes and action points from the three webinars will be delivered to Rail Minister Huw Merriman as part of an associated supplement in RAIL 982.

The three-part series, launching on February 28, follows on from RAIL’s successful Creating a Simpler, Better Railway webinar series last year, for which more than 1,500 people registered.

Making it happen: How rail needs to evolve in the next two, ten, and 30 years will reflect the different time horizons of the workstreams within the Government’s rail reform package, and the ongoing work of the Great British Railways Transition Team to implement it.

As such, senior members of the GBRTT and other industry leaders will once again join RAIL’s Managing Editor and Events Director Nigel Harris on the virtual sofa.

The first webinar will look at the next two years, and the immediate challenges being faced to overhaul fares and ticketing and to define how new Passenger Service Contracts will replace the traditional (but now obsolete) franchising system.

This session will have a particular focus on supporting local aspirations and how rail can better serve local communities, and (most importantly) what can we do right now to start making positive changes in the next two years?
