Busy Rail News

On Thursday 12th August BRUG members were guests of Grand Central on a journey from Bradford – London. A full report will be available at the next meeting of BRUG. Our thanks go of course to the excellent on-board and back-office staff.

On Friday 13th August, The Passenger Focus survey on rail priorities showing overcrowding to be of huge concern was reported in the T&A. BRUG and the Aire Valley Rail Users Group, AVRUG, were both quoted in the article. Also reported in The Guardian.

On Tuesday 17th August, the T&A reported Cllr Greaves call for the Transport Secretary to visit West Yorkshire and experience the severe overcrowding on a number of local services. BRUG raised the problems experienced on the Caldervale line of significant overcrowding leading to some people being unable to board some peak trains at stations between Bradford and Leeds.

Our next meeting is on Monday 6th September 7:30pm at Bradford Voluntary & Community Service, Sunbridge Road, Bradford.
