South Western Railway joins the GTMC

Rail provider South Western Railway joins the GTMC as its newest industry partner, supporting the GTMC’s ongoing campaign for improved ground transportation links across the UK.

The decision to join the GTMC comes at a time when South Western Railway commits to £1.2 billion investment plans by 2020 that will allow longer, faster and more reliable trains as well as an additional 52,000 seats. A greatly improved travel experience through better Wi-Fi coverage, charging points and a £90 million investment directed at stations, aims to attract the business travel passenger, providing them with a productive “on the go” environment and overall improved experience.

Adrian Parkes, CEO, GTMC comments: “We welcome South Western Railway with great enthusiasm as we recognise them as a very strong player in regional business and commuter rail transportation. Their strategy meets the GTMC’s goals for development of regional connectivity as a way to support business relationship and therefore, economic growth.”

Peter Williams, Commercial and Business Development Director for South Western Railway, said: “We are pleased to join the GTMC as a partner and really looking forward to promoting rail as an attractive option for business travellers across our region. We will be attending travel events and networking programmes in the months ahead to meet as many stakeholders as possible.” 

Representing a diverse range of travel management companies – from global companies to small independent specialists and top regional agencies – GTMC, originally founded in 1967, is the voice of business travel and acts to lobby those who have an impact on the business travel community, together with promoting the activities of its members as the best in quality and value to the business traveller.
