Another Busy Year...
It's been another busy year for our volunteer-run campaign for publicly-owned public transport.
In April, our legal action forced the Department for Transport into taking our East Coast mainline back under public control as LNER. Our lawyers continue to monitor the situation to see that Virgin and Stagecoach are properly penalised for their failings.
Public ownership continues to present itself as the commonsense solution to continuing problems on our railways. In September, after the Office of Rail & Road found that 'systemic failings' were to blame for the disastrous introduction of new timetables, we were invited to take part in a live debate on BBC Radio 2’s Jeremy Vine show.
We continue to support local groups fighting back against different private train operators all over the country through own 'franchises' initiative. Please support:
• Norfolk for the Nationalisation of Rail fighting Abellio Greater Anglia
To deliver a fully-integrated network, which serves all corners of our country, it's clear we need all our public transport back under public ownership and control. In 2018, we've been supporting local campaigns around the UK taking on the private bus companies. If you're in Glasgow, Manchester or Bristol, please join:
