Many frustrated commuters frequently waiting for trains at Oxford station will be saying ‘I told you so’.
Oxford Rail Station has been named the third worst train station in England, according to data released by watchdog Transport Focus.
Data shows that just 67 per cent of passengers were ‘satisfied’ with the Park End Street station’s services.
This was the third lowest figure recorded across the UK, the worst being Glasgow Queen Street at 58 per cent followed by Gatwick Airport at 66 per cent.
Of the findings, Transport Focus chief executive Anthony Smith said: “Investment in stations can improve passengers’ satisfaction when targeted at features which make a difference to their experience.
“Passengers’ top priorities for stations include arrival time information, waiting rooms and the overall look and feel of the station.”
Transport Focus spoke to 28,940 passengers at Britain’s rail stations between September and November 2017 as part of the National Rail Passenger Survey.
Results are based on the 56 stations where at least 100 people responded.
The top five stations were: London King’s Cross, 96 per cent; London St Pancras, 95 per cent; Birmingham New Street, 92 per cent; Reading, 92 per cent and London Marylebone, 91 per cent.
