Fair Fares Now

Roads to Nowhere

  • Fair Fares Now placard at demo

    We've just learnt that rail fares are set to rise by 3.6% in January. 

    At a time when wages are largely stagnating, this is not OK.

    We need a fares freeze!

    Brexit has a whole range of implications for transport and for the environment.

    Email your MP to ask that our environment laws are not weakened or left vulnerable by Brexit.

    The Government has slammed the brakes on its promise to electrify rail lines in the North of England, the Midlands and South Wales.

    Cleaner, greener, faster travel should be available across the country, not just in London and South East England. Sign our petition!

    Do you know a road even uglier than this?!

    Whether it's a rural or an urban road, nominate it in our ugly roads competition and let's see if we can get it beautified!

    The Government gives grants for converting to electric cars and vans - but not to electric bikes. Let's get that changed!

    Please email your MP and ask for this simple change: it would not cost any extra money, would be popular and would do a lot of good.
