Grant Shapps – 2022 Comments on Rail Announcements

The comments made by Grant Shapps, the Secretary of State for Transport, on 21 January 2022.

Train passengers are all too often plagued by an endless torrent of repeated and unnecessary announcements.

In line with the passenger improvements, we are rolling out with our Plan for Rail we want to see improvements to the railways for those who use them day in day out.

That’s why I’m calling for a bonfire of the banalities to bring down the number of announcements passengers are forced to sit through and make their journey that little bit more peaceful.
