General Secretary Mick Cash said: "This is just more of the same from this Government - ring-fencing the profits of the private companies while hitting jobs, services and safety and RMT will continue to fight the cuts assault in every corner of the transport sector.
"With soaring passenger demand it is ludicrous to be hammering down on transport budgets while services are already struggling to cope and are running right on the knife edge of public safety.
"If this rotten Government was serious about efficiency it would kick out the profiteering private operators and bring our transport services back under public ownership and control."
