  15. Mayor's ultimatum 'still in place' despite ticket offer

    Allen Cook

    BBC News

    The West Midlands mayor says his ultimatum to West Midlands Trains remains in place despite the firm offering discounts to season ticket holders.

    Train

    The operator's made the move after months of disruption following the introduction of a new timetable in May, which the firm's claimed is too complex.

    Earlier this week, mayor Andy Street said he expected a reliable service from 31 January or he'd ask the government to remove the franchise from the company.

    He's now welcomed the discount move but said his ultimatum was still in place.

  16. Passengers offered season ticket discount over disruption

    Season ticket holders on services run by West Midlands Trains will be offered discounts from January after months of disruption.

    Passengers at a railway station

    Passengers on both West Midlands Railway and London Northwestern Railway have seen delays, cancellations and overcrowding over the past few months.

    The operator blamed a new timetable introduced in May, which it claims is too complex.

    Passengers using weekly, monthly and annual season tickets will be offered a 3% cut in the cost, which the firm claims will offset the annual 2.8% rise in national fares from 2 January.

    West Midlands Trains says the timetable will also be simplified in May and it'll offer other passengers a summer ticket promotion.

    Earlier this week, West Midlands mayor Andy Street said he'd ask the government to strip the operator of the franchise if it didn't restore a reliable service by 31 January.
