Rail travel in the UK is over-priced and chaotic. Renationalising the railways would keep prices in check, and improve the experience of both travellers and workers. Sign this petition to call for a rail service that prioritises people over profit.
We have the most expensive train fares in Europe, where most railways are publicly owned. An overwhelming majority of the UK public support renationalising our railways, but the government isn't listening.
Privatisation has cost hundreds of millions of pounds in public money as we repeatedly pay for errors made by those we outsource the rail services to. At the same time, the messy mixture of providers has led to poorer working conditions for those who keep our services running daily for modest pay. Privatisation has also led to inconsistent safety, including several fatal derailings.
Please sign to tell the government that the public wants nationalised, affordable, better run rail services.
