Our role in getting you where you need to go

Every year, 1.7 billion people travel by rail – and every day more than four million passenger journeys start, end or pass through the stations we manage.

We’re transforming the railway

So many people rely on the railway to get them to work, home and to friends and family. That’s why we invest £100m each week on improvements for passengers. We’re making it possible to run longer, faster trains by lengthening platforms and electrifying more railway lines.

We’re also transforming Network Rail to ensure the needs of passengers are at the heart of everything we do.

Our stations

Our 20 managed stations – including Birmingham New Street, Manchester Piccadilly, Edinburgh Waverley and 11 in London – are Britain’s busiest and biggest stations.

We regularly upgrade stations – not just those we manage – to get the best for passengers. Dedicated station improvement programmes are a key part of our Railway Upgrade Plan. Our aim is to create destination stations that are accessible to everyone and allow for a safe and efficient flow of passengers even during busy travel times.

Safety on the network

We’re committed to keeping everyone safe at stations,  level crossings  and across the railway . We work closely with communities to prevent suicidevandalism and trespass,  and to promote safety across the network.
