With our proposals the current franchising system would be replaced with different types of services designed to suit the needs of different areas and different passengers.
Accountability would be strengthened by creating a new independent national organising body to co-ordinate the whole industry, helping to end the blame game when things go wrong and giving penalties where rail companies fall short.
And we want the new system to be underpinned by an easier to use, better value fares system.
With the railway on the cusp of major reform, rail companies are calling for big changes to the system to create a more customer-focussed, joined-up and accountable railway.
Our proposals could fundamentally change how people use and view rail, but what big changes do you want to see to your railway?
