The Urban Passenger Rail Operations industry includes businesses that operate passenger rail networks through urban, suburban or metropolitan areas, including specialised town-to-station and town-to-airport transport. The industry has grown strongly over the past five years, although this largely reflects trends in revenue from the industry's largest player, Transport for London (TfL). Over the five years through 2014-15 industry revenue is expected to grow at a compound annual rate of 5.5% to reach £3.4 billion.
This industry transports passengers by rail through urban, suburban or metropolitan areas, often underground. The industry also includes town-to-airport and town-to-station transport by rail. Tramways and interurban railways are not included in the industry.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
