Planned closure of ticket offices at 51 London Overground stations - tell us your views20 September 2018
Arriva Rail London have sent us details of their plans to close ticket offices at 51 London Overground stations*. London TravelWatch is now consulting passengers on these changes and wants to hear from as many passengers as possible. Passengers can comment on the proposals via an online survey which opens today and runs until 11 October 2018.
Arthur Leathley, Chair of London TravelWatch said: ‘We want to ensure that passengers can still purchase all the tickets that they need after these proposed changes. There must also be suitable provision of information and security if the ticket offices at these stations were to close. We will review the responses we receive from passengers to our survey and make a recommendation to the Department for Transport based on these and other information we receive.’
Further information on consultations and closures can be found in the consultations section of the London TravelWatch website. Passengers can also send comments on the proposed changes to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to 169 Union Street, London, SE1 0LL.
