The unbelievable levels of disruption on Thameslink have inflicted misery on thousands of commuters and cost passengers unnecessary stress, time, money and sometimes even their jobs.
This is an emergency situation so Liberal Democrats are proposing an emergency solution: the Department for Transport should take over Thameslink.
A tough measure such as this will make it clear to the other companies running rail services that when they fail their customers, they will be sacked too.
“We the undersigned call for the Department for Transport to take over the running of the Thameslink franchise until such a time as a long-term solution can be found and a satisfactory service maintained.”
We will include your name and address when submitting the petition to the Department for Transport.
