The Association of Train Operating Companies (ATOC) in UK wants to improve stations across England and Wales, so as to provide more facilities to the passengers.

ATOC chief executive Michael Roberts said, “Train companies are keen to move faster on initiatives to improve stations and have been calling for quicker procedures to approve projects.”

“We have also recently put proposals to the Department for Transport to bring forward further improvements, such as much-needed extra car parking space at over 60 stations,” he added.

Later he said that the existing commitments include a £150m programme to introduce better passenger facilities (such as better toilets, waiting rooms and retail facilities) in at least 150 stations across England and Wales.
