Industrial action during December.
Unfortunately, the RMT union has called a number of strikes for December (the next scheduled dates are Saturday 23 December, Sunday 24 December, Wednesday 27 December and Sunday 31 December.) that will significantly affect CrossCountry train services. We will be operating a reduced service but running some longer trains. Amended timetables will be confirmed nearer to each strike day, so please keep checking this page for details before using any on-line journey planners. Click here for the latest information.
We want you to enjoy travelling with us.
Buy tickets for any train journey in Britain. We cross more of the country than any other train company.
From the moment you plan your travel to the time you finish it, we want travelling with us to be a pleasure. We believe that a number of factors help to make your journey a pleasant experience and we set standards against each of these factors.
Our Passenger's Charter sets out our commitments to you so that you can judge us against our promises. We intend to provide the best possible standard of service to you so if at any time you are not satisfied with the service we provide, please contact us with your thoughts.
Due to an unprecedented rise in correspondence received, it may take us a little longer to respond to your Delay Repay submission than normal, so there is no need to trouble yourself by contacting us again. Please be assured that if you have received an email providing an Crosscountry case reference, your claim is being processed and a response will be issued just as soon as we can.
If you have any comments, ideas or complaints about any of our facilities, we offer a number of ways of getting in touch:
Working with Network Rail, we continually aim to make our train services morereliable and run on time. We monitor all our services every day to check that we are achieving this aim.
The standard measure used throughout the rail industry in Great Britain is the Public Performance Measure (PPM). This is a combined measure of how many trains timetabled to operate have run throughout the entire route and calling points and how many have arrived at their final destination within ten minutes of their advertised time.
Our Public Performance Measure from Sunday 9 October to Saturday 12 November 2016 was 86.5%.
We appreciate that a delay to your train is always frustrating, whether you are waiting at a station or already on board. Our staff are trained to identify and sort out any problems you experience as a result of a delay to your train. We will always do our best to let you know about any delays as they arise before you board the train.
