Save our buses

Fair Fares Now

Roads to Nowhere

  • Part of our map of bus cuts

    Devastating cuts are being inflicted on vital bus services on a par with the Beeching rail cuts of the 1960s.

    We've launched an interactive map showing the scale of the cuts.

  • Rail passenger growth has been huge but very uneven. Scroll, zoom and click on individual stations to see how passenger numbers have changed since 1997.

    Whether you're keen to reduce rail fares, save buses or fight climate change, we'd love you to get involved.

    Tell us which of our campaigns you're interested in and we'll send targeted actions directly to your inbox.

  • With the Government freezing rail fair increases at 1.1%, they're at their lowest in six years, so what about a better deal for part-time workers?

    Highways England is supposed to be spending more than £500 million to reduce the environmental impact of main roads but progress is painfully slow.

    Use your local knowledge and our new map to help us send them a plan!
