RMT welcomes London Travelwatch report but warns it will go nowhere without Government funding

TRANSPORT UNION RMT welcomed the publication of London Travelwatch’s report into the future of public transport in the capital but warned that without a change of approach from Government toward TfL it will go nowhere.
 
 
 
The union pointed to recommendations stressing the importance of rebuilding passenger confidence by increasing capacity, maintaining social distancing and making sure services are as safe and clean as possible. The report also calls for major investment in making public transport more accessible to disabled and older passengers.
 
 
 
RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said;
 
 
 
“This report adds to the overwhelming case for decisive action to rebuild passenger safety and confidence in London’s public transport system but it will simply gather dust on the shelf if the government continues its politically motivated attacks on TfL.
 
 
 

“Delivering the kind of future London Travelwatch envisage needs long-term funding, abandoning the ideology that sees staff simply as a cost to be cut and an end to the failed outsourcing of supposedly ‘ non-core’ cleaning”.
