Better rail services on the North Staffordshire Crewe-Derby line

This petition had 253 supporters

As anyone who has ever used the services will know, the trains on this line and service provided are just not fit for purpose. Passengers can struggle to cram onto the single carriage often operated on the line and many of us would like to see a more regular service.

A recent study, by Stoke-on-Trent City Council, found that the use of a one- or two-carriage train, once an hour, is failing to meet demand.

In addition, the rolling stock currently used on this line will not meet disabled access requirements coming into force before the end of 2019.

I am organising this petition to make known the strength of feeling of passengers in advance of the award of the new East Midlands rail franchise in 2019. We are calling for better services on this line.
