    Not sure if franchise consultations fall into the category of 'other projects', but couldn't see anywhere else to post it!                                 Anyway have any CRPs got top tips for engaging passengers & stakeholders in franchise consultations? The deadline for the West Midlands Franchise Consultation (which includes the Marson Vale Line) is fast approcahing but there seems to be a lack of awareness of the significance of the process in the local area. This is despite the Marston Vale Community Rail Partnership's best efforts to promote the consultation via a vareity of means including station posters, distribution of leaflets to our outlets, stands at events, e-bulletins to our subscribers & stakeholders and social media.                                                                                                                                                                                                    The name 'West Midlands' doesn't help as people in the area don't relate to it......

    We did not engage passengers about the re franchising - but we did work with all the LA's to ensure we sang from the same songsheet when we met the bidders.

    For info, by popular demand there's now a dedicated section of the forum for New franchises, so feel free to post there in future.
