Arriva Trains Wales has operated the Wales & Borders franchise since August 2003. The franchise, which includes most train services in Wales, is intended to run for fifteen years. In 2010, Arriva was taken over by Deutsche Bahn, Germany’s national state-owned rail operator. Arriva also operates the Northern, Chiltern Railways and CrossCountry franchises, as well as London Overground.
• Do you use the Arriva Trains Wales service regularly?
• Do you believe it should be returned to public hands as part of a re-unified national rail network run for people not profit?
• Then, why not start a campaign building up to the franchise end?
Bring Back British Rail will support you by promoting your campaign’s details on this website and putting you in touch with other local activists via our Facebook, Twitter and Riseup communities. Please get in touch on the email address below!
