Amanda Milling MP, Member of Parliament for Cannock Chase, is calling for late night Rugeley train services.
At Transport Questions in Parliament, the Cannock Chase MP, raised the lack of a late night train to Rugeley on the Chase Line with the Trains Minister as she looks to get this issue addressed in future timetable changes.
Passengers using the Chase Line travelling to and from Rugeley are disadvantaged as the last service from Birmingham terminates at Hednesford.
This leaves passengers having to choose between cutting short their evenings out or arranging onward travel from Hednesford.
Amanda Milling MP said: “The electrification of the Chase Line has greatly improved the service overall, however, I am concerned that Rugeley passengers remain disadvantaged as the last service from Birmingham still doesn’t go through to the Rugeley stations. I don't want passengers from Rugeley faced with the choice of having to cut short their night out in Birmingham or having to find onward travel from Hednesford. Unfortunately, extending the last train from Birmingham through to the Rugeley stations is still not included in the upcoming December timetable changes. I am therefore calling on West Midlands Trains, Network Rail and Department for Transport to look at ways to introduce this service in future timetables changes."
