Save Gloucester railway station's ticket office

The Liberal Democrats are campaigning against the decision to close Gloucester railway station’s ticket office.

Rail companies have announced plans to close hundreds of station ticket offices across England over the next three years.

Great Western Railway, which operates Gloucester railway station, has begun a consultation on the future of the ticket office with it forecast to close by June 2024.

Under the proposals staff would be redeployed to work in public facing roles at the station, to sell tickets, offer travel advice and help people with accessibility.
