Ticket office: Days of action

RMT are organising days of action in July in defence of ticket offices. It is clear from the extent of the Train Operating Companies’ plans that ticket office closures are a serious issue for the general public.

Jan Shortt said: “The NPC is joining with the Association of British Commuters, the RMT and disability groups in urgently responding to the 15-day Transport Focus & London Travelwatch consultation on the proposals.

“We are also writing to the Office of Rail and Road (ORR) and the Equalities & Human Rights Commission (EHRC), who we understand were, shockingly given no notice on the plans.

“We have no intention of allowing these plans to be pushed through and will campaign robustly against them.”
