Proposed changes

This section provides details on our proposed changes to our statistical publications. It outlines our proposals and asks for feedback from users of the statistics. The feedback received will inform our decisions about any potential changes and may influence our decisions.From 2015-16 Q3, ORR is proposing to replace the existing timetabled train kilometres measure with actual passenger train kilometres. The aim of this is to create an accurate picture of the actual volume of service delivered by train operators rather than what they are scheduled to deliver. If you have any comments or queries on this proposed change, please contact rail.stats@orr.gsi.gov.uk.
