  12. Southern Rail Criticism

    Rail travellers are being badly let down, according to an influential committee of MPs.

    A report by the Transport Select Committee criticises complicated ticketing systems, overcrowding and a lack of access for disabled passengers. 

    It also condemns the government's handling of rail franchises, and singles out the "woeful" experience of Southern passengers, who have faced months of industrial action and staff shortages.
