TSSA welcomes Woolwich Ferry insourcing

10 February 2020

Transport union TSSA welcomes today's announcement that the Woolwich Ferry service is to be brought in-house to Transport for London by the end of the year.

The service had been beset by service delays, cancellations and failures. While the full details of the insourcing arrangement are being finalised, TSSA’s general secretary Manuel Cortes said he hoped the move will “set a trend by which London's entire transport network is brought back in-house”.


Manuel Cortes said: “This is good news for commuters and staff of the Woolwich Ferry service.

“We hope this sets a trend by which London's entire transport network is brought back in-house so it can be run in the interests of Londoners not shareholders.

“In example after example, we see that private operators cannot be trusted with our transport network. From rail to water and road, public transport must be owned by and run in the public interest.”
