DfT have final say on full HS service for DEAL from Oct 2014

PRESS RELEASE from Southeastern:

The current Southeastern franchise expires on 12 October 2014. Between then and June 2018 we’ll be entering what’s called a Direct Award period with the Department for Transport (DfT).

The DfT is responsible for specifying what services will operate and to help with their planning, Southeastern will prepare a proposal to submit to its officials which meets their requirements for service, access, station quality, ticketing and other improvements. The DfT will have the final say, but we want to ask anyone who travels with us or is any way affected by our services what they wish to see in the coming four years so we can factor these in to our submission to the DfT.
