Government must end misery of overcrowded commuter trains

24 July 2013
Campaign for Better Transport has responded to the publication of statics by the Department for Transport showing overcrowding on peak time rail services.

Richard Hebditch, Campaigns Director, Campaign for Better Transport said

"These statistics show rail is vital to the economy, getting millions of people to work every day. But it also shows many commuters are faced with an unacceptable combination of overcrowded trains and spiraling ticket prices. Government needs to give rail passengers a fair deal by ending above inflation ticket price hikes and making sure franchise holders tackle overcrowding."
