The Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham says he’s considering a legal challenge to stop a consultation to close the majority of train ticket offices.
Train operators across the country are asking passengers for their say on the plans, unveiled by industry body the Rail Delivery Group (RDG). RDG claim things have changed significantly over the past few decades, with just 12% of tickets sold at offices today, compared to 82% in the mid-90s.
Mr Burnham said: “I’m hugely concerned that the voices of disabled people are being excluded. The consultation is not in easily accessible formats.
“Are rail companies saying the 12 per cent of people that use ticket offices don’t matter?
“I am considering legal action; this can’t just be rammed through.
“They really must put a proper consultation in place. We are going to fight back in Greater Manchester against that.”
