Merseyrail has the best customer service levels in the UK rail network, a new survey by the Institute of Customer Service (ICS) has declared.
The rail company also beaten leading brands in other sectors such as The Co-op, Audi and the Bank of Scotland in the survey, and was also ranked as the second-best transport company in the UK.
The January 2023 UK Customer Satisfaction Index (UKCSI) is a national benchmark of customer satisfaction covering 281 organisations or organisation types across 13 sectors. The UKCSI score is based on how customers rate organisations across 26 measures and is based on 45,000 survey responses.
The Institute’s purpose is to enable organisations to achieve tangible business benefits through excellent customer service aligned to their business goals.
The index placed Merseyrail in the overall top 50 of companies in the UK, alongside brands such as Waitrose, John Lewis, Marks & Spencer, and Apple.
Suzanne Grant, Commercial Director of Merseyrail said:
“Merseyrail is delighted to be named as the best UK rail company for customer service, and second-best in our sector of transport.
