Save our Railway Ticket Offices in Seaford, Newhaven, Lewes, Plumpton and Polegate

Rail firms have announced plans for the mass closure of England’s ticket offices including several here in Sussex.

Train operators have proposed to shut down almost all of the 1,007 remaining offices, bar at the busiest stations, within three years.

Rail ticket offices, such as our local ones here in Seaford, Newhaven, Lewes, Plumpton and Polegate, are a lifeline for so many passengers, particularly those who are elderly or disabled and those who are visitors.

A number of other stations used by local people are also at risk, such as at Hassocks, Burgess Hill, Eastbourne and Brighton.

James MacCleary is calling for these plans to be stopped and for our ticket offices to be saved. Public transport should be becoming a better, more accessible option, not losing services.

Our detailed reasons for opposing these plans are at Ticket Office Submission.

Show your support for the campaign by signing our petition today.

Save our Railway Ticket Offices in Seaford, Newhaven, Lewes, Plumpton and Polegate

I/we the undersigned call on the Department for Transport and Southern Rail to drop plans to shut local railway station ticket offices.
