What did the officials say?
Commenting on the results, Andy Heath, Managing Director at Merseyrail said:
“The results of this survey show that Merseyrail still has some of the most satisfied passengers in the country, which is no easy achievement when we’re working with 40 year old trains. Our network is unique in how it runs, but to out-perform other regional and national operators so significantly is a real testament to the commitment Merseyrail has to provide the best possible service, in all circumstances, to our passengers. Whether that’s our teams who worked through the night to keep trains running during the freezing conditions earlier this year, the reliable 12 hour service that we have ensured we provide on any days of industrial action or the extra effort that we make to support local events with enhanced services.
