Colin is the New Voice of the Rail Passenger
September 27th 2005
Colin Foxall has been named the new Chairman of the Rail Passengers Council (RPC) where he will act as the voice of the nation’s train travellers.
He has been Acting Chair of the RPC since Stewart Francis stepped down due to ill health in May. Colin was previously Chairman of the RPC for Wales and is also currently a non-executive director of Radian Asset Assurance.
“This is an exciting time to lead the new, independent RPC,” said Colin. “I look forward to working with the new board and staff to achieve improvements for all rail users, and to ensure that the passenger voice is heard in the key debates about the future of the railway,” he added.
The new-look RPC, established in July, aims to improve the quality of all passengers’ journeys, and be as innovative and flexible as possible so it can react quickly to changing passenger priorities and events. They will focus on a small number of key rail issues, such as fares, route utilisation, franchise negotiation and stations, and helping others help themselves.
Transport Secretary Alistair Darling said: “Colin Foxall will build the Rail Passengers Council as an efficient and effective body.”
