Cross Country Services

Alex Chalk, Conservative candidate for Cheltenham, wants to hear your views:

The franchise of the Cross Country rail service with Arriva Cross Country (AXC) was recently extended until 2020.

The timetable is going to be reviewed to reduce overcrowding and increase flexibility from December 2017. I want to make sure that any timetable changes benefit Cheltenham. I am preparing a detailed submission to the Rail Minister, Paul Maynard, and I am collecting rail users’ experience ahead of making formal representations.
