This scheme is administered by the Association of Train Operating Companies (ATOC).

The number of current Network Rail employees who receive concessionary rail travel is 12,146. It is not possible to break down this figure between board members and other employees.

No data for former employees are available from the Department for Transport without incurring disproportionate cost.
