Save Streatham’s Station Ticket Offices
The Government has paved 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.
Recently amended guidance around changing ticket office opening hours appears to clear the way for train operating companies to close down rail station ticket offices across the country, including three in our constituency.
The potential closure of more than 1,000 ticket offices across the network poses a risk to thousands of jobs at a time when people up and down the country are already facing financial turmoil.
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.
Rail fare increases this year mean the cost of a season ticket between Streatham and London Bridge has risen by 46% since 2010. It’s unjustifiable for rail companies to charge more and more while delivering less to the passengers who pay for their services.
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.
