Our policy is for franchising in the Greater Anglia region and nationally to support economic growth and deliver improvements for passengers.

We held a public consultation on the future of franchising in the East Anglia region and the results of this will be taken into account in the requirements for the current franchise competition.

We expect bidders to exceed these requirements. The Invitation To Tender will be provided to bidders in August and we will announce a winner in July 2016.
