ORR seeks to improve data available to industry

This from the ORR...

The Office of Rail Regulation (ORR) today launches a project aimed at improving the data it makes available to the rail industry.

The regulator is keen to shed light on how data can be most effectively disseminated to the rail industry, and is seeking views through a range of interviews and an online survey. Information emerging from the research will inform the future delivery and scope of ORR’s data.

ORR chief executive Bill Emery said: “The study will help us better understand how we can best deliver rail data and statistics to the rail industry and interested public.

“It is vital that the rail sector has ready access to reliable and useful information so that it can continue to improve standards of service, safety and efficiency for rail users.”
