easitNETWORK rail discount scheme
EDM #177
Tabled 12 February 2020
2019-21 Session
That this House is concerned about the decision of Great Western Railway to end its involvement in the easitNETWORK rail discount scheme; notes that the scheme has made rail travel affordable for many passengers and delivered a modal shift of passengers from road to rail; believes that the decision made by Great Western Railway will lead to passengers switching back to car travel, leading to increased congestion, poorer air quality and higher carbon emissions; urges the company to change its mind about this matter; and calls on the Government to do all it can to encourage Great Western Railway to continue to participate in the easitNETWORK scheme.
