Public transport is causing chaos in Kings

 Published on: 21st January 2019   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

Kings Langley residents took to social media to complain about the train service to and from the village with one calling it a disgrace.

Anger has sparked amongst Kings Langley commuters due to the lack of trains that run through the station. 

It was announced in 2018, that Kings Langley fares are the most expensive in Hertfordshire. This adds to the 3.1 per cent increase in train fares that was introduced on January 2. 

One Twitter user tagged @LNRailway and said: “8:18 from Kings Langley to Euston now cancelled. Please can we have an explanation as KL pay some of the highest season ticket prices in our region & only get a few trains that stop here”

The same Twitter user later tweeted @LNRailway: “Appreciate your apologies but KL residents are ripped off daily, such a poor & infrequent service!”

A different Twitter user also tagged @LNRailway and said: “When you cancel trains at short notice why don’t you change stopping patterns to compensate? Two half empty trains just gone through Kings Langley. Either could have stopped here”

The fare increase was described by general secretary of the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers, Mick Cash, as a “national disgrace”. 

A women, whose son lives in Kings Langley, has got in touch with MyKingsNews to vent her frustrations at the lack of public transport to get to and from Kings Langley Station.

She said: “My son lives in the area and we are both furious about the lack of public transport that runs through Kings Langley. It doesn’t make sense. Not everyone has a car, people rely heavily on public transport”

She added: “The question is, where the bus service has gone that used to run through the area? And why has it gone? It is shocking.”
