Over the last year the RMT has been campaigning against the DfT managed train companies’ plans for wholesale ticket office closures. The result has been the largest ever response to a government consultation. On October 31, 2023 the government announced the plans had been dropped.
RMT wants to thank everyone who made this success possible. An unprecedented 750,000 responses were received by the watchdogs during the public consultation, with 99% of people opposing the proposals.
Transport Focus’ response even cites the RMT’s campaign as generating a large number of responses.
