Ticket Inspections

December 5, 2007

This week saw the first ever barrier ticket check at Walkden, part of Northern’s on-going crack down on fare evasion.

FOWS believe fare-dodging pushes up travel costs for all legitimate passengers, and undermines the station’s passenger-usage numbers which can negatively affect how the station is prioritised for future investment. We applaud Northern’s effort to tackle this menace more vigourously than First North Western did.
