Local commuters have put up with Thameslink and Southern Rail's incompetence and thoroughly dreadful service for far too long.
According to the National Audit Office, local commuters using Southern and Thameslink have experienced consistently higher levels of disruption than anywhere else on the national rail network.
Contract set to expire
With their contract set to expire in 2021, Lambeth Liberal Democrats are calling for Thameslink and Southern to be sacked now and for local rail services to be taken over by Transport for London (TfL) as soon as possible.
Get TfL to run suburban rail services
“We call upon the Rail Minister to sack Southern Rail and Thameslink, and instead get TfL to run suburban rail services.”
