Save Streatham’s Station Ticket Offices
The Government has secretly been paving the way for ticket office closures at all three Streatham stations (Streatham, Streatham Common and Streatham Hill) threatening accessibility, passenger safety and railway workers’ jobs. We need to save Streatham’s station ticket offices.
Losing ticket offices at our Streatham stations would have particularly damaging consequences for elderly and disabled people in our community but unattended stations are less safe for everybody.
The potential closure of more than 1,000 ticket offices across the network also poses a serious risk to thousands of jobs at a time when people up and down the country are contending with soaring living costs across the board.
At the heart of this is a question of who our rail is run for: for the benefit of everyone who relies on it and the workers who keep it running; or for the benefit of a few companies and their shareholders.
That’s why I’ve launched this petition to Save Streatham’s Station Ticket Offices. You can add your name below if you’d like to support the campaign.
With these proposals in motion, rail fare increases mean the cost of a season ticket between Streatham and Central London has risen by 46% since 2010. It’s unjustifiable for rail companies to charge more and more while delivering less and less to the passengers who pay for their services.
