The new franchise award was announced today, 3 weeks earlier than planned, perhaps in the hope it will be overshadowed by Brexit news. The WLPA are already contacting the new franchise winners to arrange a meeting. The franchise has been awarded to First Group (a Scottish bus company) and MTR (a Hong Kong railway company) for 7 years.  

Further details of the new franchise improvements at www.firstgroupplc.com/southwestern

The March 2017 edition of "South Western Roundabout" has been posted or emailed to WLPA members. Join us now and you can receive a copy.

MEMBERSHIP costs only £4 per annum. The new franchise  was due to be announced on 18th April 2017 (see above). Now is a good time to influence the future franchise holder of the South West Trains franchise. For further details please email membership@wlpa.co.uk.
