House of Commons Transport Select Committee Chair Lillian Greenwood has slammed “rail mayhem” on the network as she joined Labour’s Daniel Zeichner in Cambridge.

The duo held a giant tongue-in-cheek scratchcard revealing what mayhem lies in wait – fares up, standing room only or cancelled trains. The move comes after an unprecedented set of low satisfaction ratings on the railways.  For some commuters, the chances of catching a reliable train has felt more like playing the lottery.

Daniel Zeichner said:

“Despite fares rising three times faster than wages since 2010, commuters still face a game of chance to see if they’ll get to work on time.”

He added:

“Labour wants investment in a 21st century railway, publicly owned and run for passengers not profit. We would use a windfall tax on the profits of the current train companies causing train chaos to fund a fare freeze for commuters.”
