Mayor of London offers to take over Southern

20 July 2016

TSSA backed Sadiq Khan's offer for TfL to take over the running of the troubled Southern rail franchise today.

Union leader Manuel Cortes said:

"We support the London Mayor's offer and it would be a fast and efficient way to restore a proper level of service for long suffering passengers who have been through hell these last few months.

"A publicly-run line would put passengers first and we would like to see that as the long term solution to this particular basket case.

"TfL has the management expertise to make a success of running a not for profit service. Chris Grayling should say a firm yes to this offer."
