RMT calls for national plan for rail recovery as figures show expected fall in journeys

Responding to new ORR figures showing an expected fall in passenger ‎journeys RMT general secretary Mick Cash said:

“These figures confirm we will need a new national plan for rail recovery which encourages passengers to return to our railways when it is safer to do so.

“That plan will need to be based on increased investment, more reliable and frequent journeys, affordable fares and protecting rail jobs and skills.

“The privatised railway has already shown it is not capable of delivering these objectives and to safeguard a better future for rail the government needs to ditch its ideological objection to public ownership.”
