Hull Trains Voted Top UK Rail Operator
When you invest in property, it helps to know that it’s in a city that offers the very best to long-term residents and short-stay commuters alike. That’s why we’re delighted with the recent news regarding our local rail operator.
Hull Trains has beaten all previous records – and every other rail operator in the UK – in this year’s National Rail Passenger Survey. The results, published last week, show that Hull Trains consistently has the highest levels of passenger satisfaction at 96% (compared to a national average score for other operators this year of just 80%). The Hull-to-London operator, with stops that include Doncaster, Grantham and Retford, also topped the national league table for punctuality, reliability, passenger comfort, and overall value for money.
The National Rail Passenger Survey is the annual study that provides a network-wide picture of customers’ satisfaction with rail travel. Passenger Focus, the independent consumer watchdog, conducted the survey amongst 31,160 passengers. Even though overall passenger satisfaction with rail companies has generally fallen this year, Hull Trains has maintained its status as the leading train operator in the UK for the second year running, scoring 14% higher than the average for the rest of the rail industry.
With 90 direct services to London, no booking fees or credit card charges, and the chance to save 60% when booking in advance, it’s clear why Hull Trains has been awarded this enviable status. Dedicated to being a dependable, convenient and affordable rail operator for all, £5million was invested in their fleet over the past few years to provide additional seats and improved environments within the carriages. On top of this, every Hull Trains service offers free 4G WiFi to customers for the entire journey, helping to increase travel-based digital connectivity in the UK.
Whilst Hull is 204 miles from London by rail, Hull Trains travel 7,000 miles each week, totalling over 700,000 passenger journeys each year. With usage ranging from business trips and commuting, to family holidays and stag nights, it’s not surprising that this independent operator is so popular. The recent National Rail Passenger Survey speaks volumes for the professionalism, friendliness, performance and affordability of Hull Trains, and we’re very proud to have them connecting our city to the capital.
