Easy to use for all

The Rail Technical Strategy (RTS), identifies five priorities that are key to the future of the railway and require a step change in the technical solutions. This webinar, the first in a series addressing each of the five identified priorities, will focus on ‘Easy to use for all’.

Improving the overall experience and accessibility is essential to make rail the mode of choice for a much broader range of journeys and play an important part in enabling a more inclusive society.
