What will make a better railway...

- A Quality Public Service that is publically owned and accountable with better stations, quality infrastructure and is integrated with other means of transport

- Better jobs, decent work, career opportunities

- A highly skilled workforce

- Safe to work, safe to travel

- Community has a voice and can shape the system

- Fares that are affordable and a railway that is cost effective – value for money

- Technology that improves the travel experience but is not an alternative to decent work or a quality public service

- Environmentally friendly transport
