FCP helped VIA Rail Canada to understand options to improve services on the busy Montreal-Ottawa-Toronto corridor, including strategies to use new ways to procure and finance trains and infrastructure.
FCP is providing commercial and technical leadership to Eko Rail which is developing the first modern metro in West Africa. A key strategy is the use of rebuilt electric trains instead of diesel traction as originally envisaged by the state government.
On behalf of the UK Government, FCP provided an executive management team which took over the franchise when incumbent Connex ran into financial difficulties. Following a seamless transition, operational and financial performance improved against all key indicators.
FCP advised on the potential to increase traffic and revenues on high speed lines while reducing average fares with market pricing and new retailing technology.
As "shadow operator," FCP supported Transport for London in developing operating plans and identifying critical service constraints. This work enabled TfL to procure the necessary infrastructure and subsequently award a concession for the entire London Overground network, of which the East London Line Extension forms a key part.
FCP's analysis of revenue streams and the factors affecting income and yield has enabled open-access operator Hull Trains to improve financial performance.
