Any rolling stock in operation between 2020 and 2022 will need to comply with the appropriate Accessibility Regulations. The public consultation for this franchise is ongoing and the response will inform the specification of the rolling stock. Future rolling stock strategy will be the responsibility of the successful bidder for the East Midlands franchise competition.
