Not Sure Which Company to Contact?
Just go to www.fixmytransport.com , they will send your comment or complaint on to the right company.
Looking for compensation for a delayed journey?
If your journey involved more than one company, the general rule is that you should approach the company you bought the ticket from, not the company who operate the train that was delayed. If you bought your ticket from a station then that is the company that operates that station. For journeys involving just one or predominantly one train company, go to their website first and look at their Delay Repay scheme.
If your company is listed above but your details are incorrect, please use our Contact page to advise us (send your amendment to the Chair)
