The Government and Transport for the North continue to discuss plans to compensate Northern passengers following the huge distruption to our railway system in the last few months.
I have now recieved a letter from the Rail Minister Jo Johnson outlining the proposals so far, you can read this in full below. As yet there are no details on which routes the Government consider to be the worst affected.
I am pleased to read that season ticket holders will be compensated, however I am concerned that there is still no mention of multi-modal tickets. Northern have long refused to compensate people with bus and rail combination tickets under their Delay Repay scheme despite clear instruction from Government Minsisters. I have written to Mr Johnson today to ask that action is taken to correct this and to ensure that the additional compensation will also be available to muli-modal ticket holders.
