What about elderly and handicapped?
12:30pm Tuesday 31st July 2012 in Read
SIR – While realising that Network Rail is both a profitmaking organisation and public service, I am surprised that they prioritise the closure of some ticket offices and operate reduced hours elsewhere.
Ticket offices at Foregate Street and Shrub Hill stations in Worcester were closed at 5.30pm on Friday, July 13.
Would elderly and handicapped people who are unable to operate the ticket machine be fined on boarding a train?
Hardly encouraging for someone near 80 hitherto without a criminal record.
