The number of cancellations and partial cancellations by Northern is monitored by the Rail North Partnership on behalf of the Department and Transport for the North. In line with the provisions of the Franchise Agreement, each year’s results are used to calculate an annual financial ‘performance sum payment’. Northern is required to reinvest this amount into performance improvement schemes aimed at raising performance for the benefit of passengers. The amount of these payments in each year is commercially confidential.
