We work with the industry regulator, the Office of Rail and Road, to understand how satisfied our customers are with the handling of complaints. When you contact us, you may be asked to complete a short survey to help improve the way complaints are handled in future. If you do not wish to take part, we will provide you with the opportunity to opt out of all future surveys.

If you are unhappy with our response, you can write to London TravelWatch. This is an independent statutory body, established to assist customers with unresolved complaints. You can contact London TravelWatch in a number of ways:

Complaints are handled in line with Transport for London’s Complaints Handling Procedure. You can read the procedure on the Transport for London website.
