Enterprise Monitoring Results

In accordance with the Enterprise Passenger’s Charter, we promise to monitor our Enterprise services twice per year. The latest independent monitoring surveys were carried out during June and July 2014. Millward Brown undertook the monitoring process and measured our achievements as they relate to the standards set out in our Charter including:

  • Reliability       
  • Comfort         
  • Cleanliness
  • Being on Time   
  • Courtesy
  • Answering the Telephone
  • Provision of Information

Overall satisfaction is at its highest level in more than 12 years. This is reflected by an increase in satisfaction across the majority of aspects of the Enterprise service. There has been a steady year-on-year increase in satisfaction since Spring 2011. Safety, punctuality, staff and how relaxing the journey is, were the areas which received the highest levels of satisfaction. Almost a fifth of those surveyed said they would speak highly of the service without prompting, a significant increase since last Spring; a further 56% would advocate the service if asked their opinion.

Translink and Iarnród Eireann use the information from these monitoring reports to evaluate and improve all aspects of the Enterprise service where possible. The next round of monitoring will take place in Autumn 2014.

The table below shows Customer Satisfaction Ratings which are customers’ opinions of the services provided by Enterprise.
