How we manage your feedback

Online feedback

When you submit feedback via our website you will receive an automated confirmation of receipt, but the response you receive will always be from a real person.

How we manage your feedback

A Customer Relations Officer will determine what the issue is and conduct an investigation. If they require information from another area or a statement from a member of staff, they will forward the matter to our Infrastructure area or a Depot as appropriate, who will either contact you directly or return the matter to the Customer Relations Officer. 

You will receive a response from us within seven business days.


If you are not satisfied with the response, or the manner in which your feedback was handled, you can request for the matter to be escalated to a more senior manager or to an external body. Where you request an internal escalation, a more senior manager will undertake an independent review of the matter, including the case handling and provide you with a response within seven business days.

If you are not satisfied with the outcome of your complaint and wish to have the matter dealt with independently, you may raise the matter directly with the Public Transport Ombudsman.
