Arriva Trains Wales-no renewal of their franchise in 2018
This petition made change with 1,165 supporters!
The regular users of Arriva Trains Wales service across the length and breadth of Wales and the Borders say the level of service is totally unacceptable. An appalling lack of investment, with the company channeling its £28 million of annual profits into improving its railways in Germany, has led to grossly overcrowded trains, tired shabby carriages, staff shortages leading to canceled services, truly disgusting toilets, the list could go on and on. If your experience is like those of customers in the comments below vote to end Arriva Trains Wales franchise in 2018.
