This report finds that £1.2 billion could be saved by bringing the railways into public ownership - which equates to an 18% fare cut across the board.
Do you care about public transport? Do you work in public transport?
We're creating a global policy for how we can own our trains, buses, trams and so on – and we'd love you to be part of it.
We're teaming up with the ITF’s Our Public Transport programme to create a policy for publicly owned public transport, and a toolkit showing how we can get there.
Our Public Transport is a programme by the International Transport Workers’ Federation, which represents transport workers across the world.
Together, with passengers and workers side by side, we can create an alliance for public transport that belongs to all of us.
We can show
how much support there is for public ownership of transport across different countries, and what people believe about why we should own it
what public ownership should look like – including different models and successful case studies
which campaigns and initiatives have succeeded in bringing transport into public ownership, or protecting it from privatisation – and why
Solidarity and sharing our experiences can help us bring trains, buses and trams into public ownership across the world.
You can give your thoughts in two ways:
