Passenger Information during Disruption

Feedback from customers consistently tells us that the flow of information about train services that are experiencing disruption is a priority for them and is an area we need to focus on more strongly. Whilst it is recognised the Northern have the responsibility for managing their relationship with their own customers, the interconnected nature of the rail industry dictates that a coordinated approach to the provision of passenger information during major delays/disruption is appropriate and important.

Passenger Information during Disruption (PIDD) aims to help Railway Undertakings address these issues in a broadly consistent manner.
