The Association of Train Operating Companies ('ATOC') Rail Staff Travel Scheme includes provisions which enable employees who have been made redundant as the result of an insolvent event to continue to receive leisure travel services.

While the Secretary of State approves any proposed changes to the rail staff travel scheme, it is ATOC that operates the Scheme. ATOC may be contacted at:
