Ticket offices provide important support and help to passengers, particularly elderly and vulnerable residents. Thousands and thousands of passengers use Watford Junction station every day and the ticket office is even more important if there is an interruption to services, such as periods of extreme weather or issues with the train network.
However, the Conservative government has been closing ticket offices around the country, removing the vital service they provide to rail passengers. Documents recently uncovered by the Sunday Times show that in the Conservatives plan to close every ticket office in England and "migrate to digital technology" in a bid to save rail companies £500 million.
Local Lib Dems are fighting to protect the ticket office at Watford Junction station. Join our campaign so we can show the government and rail bosses to put passengers first rather than profits.
We the undersigned, call on London North Western Railway and the Department for Transport, to rule out the closure of the ticket office at Watford Junction Station and protect the vital service it provides.
