TPE is investing £500million over the next three years including 220 brand new carriages which will provide 13 million more seats per year for customers.
The majority of customers (83%) feel Northern operates a punctual service, while 86% of those surveyed were satisfied with the speed of their journeys. Satisfaction with both measures has increased since the previous survey.
The quality of Northern’s stations was also scrutinised, with 84% of people stating they were satisfied overall. Meanwhile, 89% of those surveyed were happy with the provision of on-station information and 83% were content with the ticket buying facilities.
Richard Allan, Customer & People Experience Director at Northern, said: “It is encouraging that many of our scores are improving and we have firm plans in areas where customers want improvement, such as better stations and free WiFi on trains.
“The first of our refurbished trains are in service, the first new trains are being built, and new facilities are being built at many smaller stations. There is much more to come over the next three years as we modernise local rail services for the north.”
