Today the UK Government hikes rail fares in England and Wales by 2.6% - the first above inflation increase for seven years.
Meanwhile, they are busy trying to negotiate new 'National Rail Contracts' with a host of failed private train operating companies, which could lock us into this broken privatised system for decades to come.
Bringing all rail franchises back into public ownership would be simple, with the publicly-owned 'Operator of Last Resort' - which already runs LNER and Northern - ready to go. This could immediately enable fare cuts of 5%, and would ensure that our railways can be run in the interests of passengers and the environment to help get our country moving again as we emerge from the pandemic.
Please take action today by writing to Transport Secretary Grant Shapps.
