The Great British Railways Transition Team (GBRTT) is led by Andrew Haines OBE. We are working on behalf of the government to bring together decisions about track and train, and to lead the railway forward long-term. We are also delivering improvements that benefit passengers and freight customers in the here and now.

Our priorities​​​​​​

We are working hard to make our railways safer, more reliable, more accessible and more affordable. To get there, we will make rail:

Easier and better to use

Passenger notice board

Better at supporting local and national ambitions

A simpler sector to operate and do business in

Lower cost for taxpayers

Our focus on ‘simpler and better’ guides everything we do. 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.
