The pandemic is changing travel habits, and we are starting to see some substantial changes in passenger demand for rail travel. As we recover from the pandemic, we must ensure services are adjusted to meet these changes.  We are working with the rail industry to ensure that services are appropriate to passenger demand, whilst prioritising the good performance passengers need, and delivering good value for the taxpayer.
