A plan to change, invest and secure prosperity for Britain
Rail is fundamental to the country’s prosperity. After enormous growth, Britain’s railway is increasingly important in connecting workers to jobs, businesses to markets, and people to their families and friends.
The combination of public and private investment going into the railway is set to boost the UK’s economy by almost £85bn. But these economic benefits, shared by every region and our people, are not secure without a plan for lasting change across the industry.
'In Partnership for Britain’s Prosperity’ has been produced as the industry's single, long-term plan to secure a stronger economy, better customer journeys and more rewarding jobs on the railway. Our four Commitments for Change aim to set Britain’s railway on a course to deliver more for customers, communities, the economy and our people.
