RARS2 (Rail Availability & Reservation Service)

Introduction

RARS is a modern rail availability and reservation platform which will not only replace the National Reservations System (NRS), but also deliver a major step change for the British rail industry through the improved functionality it offers.

The RARS2 Programme is being led by the Rail Delivery Group and aims to ensure a smooth transition from NRS onto RARS.
