The Great British Railways Transition Team (GBRTT) is led by Andrew Haines OBE. We are working on behalf of the government to create a new organisation that will bring together decisions about track and train, provide accountable leadership, and lead the railway forward. We are also delivering other improvements to benefit the railway’s customers now.

Our priorities​​​​​​

We are working towards a safer, more reliable, more accessible, and more affordable railway by:

  • improving the customer experience and focusing on services that meet customers' needs;
  • simplifying the rail network and supporting the development of a more commercially robust industry;
  • bringing the right industry people together to deliver timely and smart solutions;
  • building sustainability into everything we do and becoming a sector leader in environmental protection.

Our focus on ‘simpler and better’ guides everything we do. It defines our work today, in 10 years’ time, and beyond.

A simpler railway means better experiences for customers and more clarity for people who fund and work with us. Our commitment to making improvements that matter will result in a thriving, connected, greener Britain.
