STATION STAFF = SAFETY + SECURITY = SERVICE

Fewer station staff means:

  • a less safe London Underground
  • less information and help during delays and disruptions
  • it will be harder to evacuation stations quickly and safely in the event of an emergency eg. fire, crash, bombing
  • less help for disabled, elderly and other vulnerable passengers
  • less chance of you getting the help you need with directions, information, lost property, accidents or other issues
  • less deterrent to assault, vandalism and other harmful behaviour
  • you will feel less secure travelling around London Underground

Shorter ticket office opening hours means you will not be able to get a ticket seller’s help when:

  • you have a problem with your ticket or Oyster
  • the ticket machines are not working (which will happen more often with fewer staff to service them)
  • you need to buy a ticket that is not available elsewhere
  • you believe that the ticketing system has treated you unfairly
  • your ticket or Oyster does not work
  • you want the ‘personal touch’ in dealing with your issue
