Commenting on the latest rail passengers survey, Green Party Amelia Womack says:
“I spend a lot of my time on the rails, and it’s no surprise to me that less than half of passengers are satisfied with the value of their train tickets. We’re paying far too much for services which are far too unreliable.
“It’s clear that the experiment of privatisation on our railways has failed for everyone except the fat cats making millions from our everyday journeys. As ministers prepare to announce the renationalisation of Northern rail, we must demand the full renationalisation of our train services.
“Our railways are a public good, and it’s time to put passengers before profit.”
