We did not ask specific questions about Driver Only Operation (DOO) in the Northern and TransPennine Express consultation, so analysis of responses relating to DOO has not been carried out in this way. A range of views on DOO were expressed by those who responded to the consultation. We also received 9,315 identical postcards from RMT members that highlighted concerns about a variety of franchise-related areas, including DOO.
