Fratton Traincare Depot has reduced its energy bill by 33% in just two years. Meanwhile our "garbology" recycling programme at Wimbledon depot, where about 70% of waste has been recycled this year alone, has already saved 1,500 tonnes from ending up in landfill.

And, overall, our fleet depots are well on the way to achieving their 40% target for recycling.

National Passenger Survey results

The National Passenger Survey, released by rail watchdog Passengerfocus, shows we are continuing to make improvements by delivering a safe, punctual and reliable service.

More tickets types available from ticket machines

Our programme to install 444 new easy-to-use machines across our network, which started in 2006, is due to be completed towards the end of this year.

Twelve of our stations have had new fencing installed in a £200,000 joint project with Network Rail.
