AN independent rail watchdog has opposed "without hesitation" plans to cut ticket office opening hours at stations across Times Territory.
As previously reported in the WHT, train operator First Capital Connect (FCC) wants to reduce ticket office hours at 28 of its stations, including WGC, Welwyn North, Knebworth and Cuffley.
Rail unions and passenger groups have urged commuters to complain and now London TravelWatch, which represents the interests of travellers in and around the capital, has decided to take action.
At a board meeting in London last week, bosses agreed to write to FCC and formally set out their objections to its plans.
