Title: Looking ahead - public data from TransWilts meeting earlier this week
Post by: grahame on November 21, 2019, 11:48:32 am
From TransWilts - presentation from meeting on Monday (https://transwilts.org/2019/11/21/stakeholders-meeting-monday-18-november-2019/). Meeting was for for Stakeholders and members only, but this data has been released on their public web site and publicised on their Facebook feed.  Some performance graphics - I will admit to being selective with the slides I have chosen; the full presentation is there to read (look just above)

I suspect the "Trains booked" and "Trains reaching ppm" column titles are swapped

My $64,000 question is "when do we have a service that's reliable enough to use routinely without having to go one train early, and to be proud of" . The data above suggests to me that the big problem is drivers - fix the "lack of driver issue" and your cancellations are straight away into accceptable bounds.  From another slide in the GWR presentation:

Driver numbers improving but training programmes impact numbers until May 2020

And from the TransWilts web page:

Our next meetings will be:
AGM Saturday 25 April @ Trowbridge Civic Centre
Stakeholders Wednesday 20 May @ Trowbridge Civic Centre
Please register for tickets in the new year on Eventbrite.

Note that the TransWilts AGM this year was purely for members, and that two events were held in the couple of months thereafter - one open to only to Stakeholders and members, and the other an annual conference which was open to the public.  I am unclear as yet as to invitees on 20th May next year, but adding both to the public diary here.  Also adding 13th May 2020 for Community Rail in the City and 4th April 2020 (yes, clashed with the Coffee Shop AGM) when I understand station activities are being planned.

Delighted to hear from Dan Okey of GWR at the West Wilts Rail User Group meeting in Westbury that passenger numbers are growing 4% on the TransWilts this year on year. Other Westbury services more or less flat-lining.  All the more remarkable when performance has been very much bleo targets with around five times the cancellations there should be.

Scratching your head as to why on earth it has been growing in spite of the unreliabiity?  You (dear reader from afar) may be scratching your head - I am not; I think the +4% contrary to a negative figure that you might have predicted is - in part at least - a result of the Melksham Rail User Group's summer 2019 activities.  A huge thank you to members and supporters here and elsewhere; MRUG meeting next Wednesday (27th November) at the United Reform Church off the Market Place at 19:30.  All welcome. Onwards and upwards for 2020.

It is possible the event on the 20th May may be combined with the AGM rather than two separate events.

That's good to hear. Did he say anything about your desire to have a more frequent service?  Is it all linked with the next franchise period (or is a direct award, I'm never sure!)

I am advised that the AGM remains on 25th April, but the Stakeholder meeting has been rescheduled from 20th May to 18th May.  I will update the calendar accordingly.

Adding 16th November for the following stakeholder meeting.

Meeting times now amended to 10:00 - 15:00 for the AGM, and 13:30 - 15:30 for the Stakeholder meetings (and extra half hour according to EventBrite). Note the new longer AGM, and the Stakeholder meeting moved from morning to afternoon, but still much shorter than last year; I suspect there's a presentation after the AGM as I can't see the official stuff taking 5 hours.
