Passenger opinions of network-wide train services are collected twice a year from a representative sample of journeys.


Chiltern Railways Managing Director, Dave Penney, said: “We are delighted that passengers have rated Chiltern as the UK’s top DFT franchise for overall satisfaction. What is just as pleasing is that we are also at the top of the table for satisfaction with punctuality and reliability, car parking and for requests made to our station staff. The findings reinforce our commitment to providing a high quality passenger experience.”
