Transport for Wales was set-up to ‘Keep Wales Moving’ by delivering expert advice, customer-focused services and targeted investment in modern transport infrastructure.

In 2018, Transport for Wales embarked on a 15 year journey – to transform the network across Wales and the border, with new services and rolling stock, innovative solutions, and a massive programme of station investment.

In order to make this journey successful, Transport for Wales Rail understood the important of innovation. They knew they had to improve their existing processes, improve their internal thinking to problem solving and improve the entire Welsh Rail experience.

Lab by Transport for Wales was set up to create, encourage and foster a culture of innovation across Transport for Wales Rail Services.
