Arriva to take over London Overground

18 March 2016

Responding to the news that Arriva have been awarded the franchise to run London Overground, TSSA leader Manuel Cortes commented:

"What TfL aren't telling you is that Arriva is wholly owned by the German state railway Deutsche Bahn who are in business to maximise the profits made from London's passengers which will be reinvested not here in London but in Berlin where they will subsidise the cost of rail fares in the German capital. It's train-stupid economics."
