Customer Experience

With our new Greater Anglia franchise, the business is investing in methods of tracking and improving our customer experience. Currently we have two measures:

  1. The National Rail Passenger Survey
  2. The Customer Experience Performance Model

Please see below for our most recent results.

National Rail Passenger Survey

The National Rail Passenger Survey (NRPS) is a national survey which tracks passenger satisfaction when using rail services in the UK. The NRPS surveys are conducted and published twice a year (spring and autumn) by an independent customer body, Transport Focus. Please see below Greater Anglia’s latest satisfaction levels across various areas of the business.
