More RENFE news.

Things are changing fast with the train services here in Spain.

In late October 2013 a company called Ferrovial was given the contract for the catering on all AVE and long distance trains in Spain. It has just been announced that as from the 1 December 2013 the cost of drinks and food on trains will be reduced to the customer.

Ferrovial has the contract for the next 4 years.

This is part of a plan to increase passengers using the train.

1. Re: More RENFE news.

It appears to me that the award of the catering contract is linked to industrial action called by the unions. The existing catering company Italian based Cremonini has been fighting the authorities for some months and now it appears during the transition period there will be continuing labour disputes most of the difficult days for travelling by rail have already been announced with some reductions of services. All to do with bringing the services on Spanish railways more into the long term private domain and introducing new management skills.
