National Rail Passenger Survey Customer Satisfaction
Twice a year, Transport Focus carries out the National Rail Passenger Survey (NRPS), asking passengers travelling with every UK train company about their experiences on board. This is amalgamated into an overall customer satisfaction score, reported as a percentage of customers who were satisfied with their experience, and published for all to see.
Our current NRPS score (Spring 2020) is 95%.
