After another year of miserable delays and cancellations, Tom Brake MP is calling on the Rail Minister to offer a one month rail refund to local commuters.
Tom Brake, Lib Dem MP for Carshalton & Wallington, said:
“The only thing reliable about Southern and Thameslink is the guaranteed disappointment with almost every journey.
“Local people spent 2017 shelling out their hard-earned cash for overcrowded, unreliable and shambolic train services -- and that’s if the trains actually turn up. The very least they deserve is a partial refund.
“To add insult to injury, commuters are today facing another big hike in their travel costs. That’s a real kick in the teeth.
"I hope the Rail Minister and the Government will listen to my calls for an immediate fares freeze.”
