As part of today’s Action for Rail day of action, we are asking everyone to let their MP know that we’ve had enough of the franchise rip off and that public ownership is the only way we’re going to get costs under control, fares down and passengers put first.
You’ll have seen HERE how much we’re getting fleeced to the tune of around £2.7bn by private train companies as part of the franchised rail system.
Its these costs, as well as a significant range of others identified by the Rebuilding Rail report, that mean that you pay among the highest rail fares in Europe.
Let your MP know that we want rail back in public ownership. And let’s start by keeping East Coast in house and taking back West Coast. We have an ideal opportunity, let’s use it.
