This study for the Office of Rail Regulation sets out to examine what information is important to passengers when choosing and buying rail tickets, what information passengers need in order to make informed decisions when selecting tickets, and how and when this information should be provided. The research is based on an online survey and behavioural experiment. It informs the ORRs’ Consultation on the development of a code of practice on the provision of railway ticket information.
