Merseyrail celebrates award win and shortlist success

Merseyrail has been shortlisted three times at the National Rail Awards 2019, including the coveted Passenger Operator of the Year award.

The rail company, which was named the most punctual train company in the country for 2018-19, is up for Safety Initiative of the Year, Great Place to Work and Passenger Operator of the Year.

The news comes after Merseyrail were crowned winners of the Excellence in Sustainability and Society Award at the British Quality Foundation Awards last month (May).

This accolade recognised community and environmental projects flourishing over the last 12 months at Merseyrail.

These include an LED lighting project, staff environment code, educational travel awareness initiatives with schools across the region, community partnerships and support for organisations such as MENCAP and Autism Initiatives.

The National Rail Awards will take place on 19 September 2019 at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
