Penzance Ticket Office

I have been concerned by the suggestion that Penzance ticket office is under threat of closure.

The RMT Union have suggested that it is under threat – just as they seek to get public support for a strike.

GWR have assured me that no decisions have been made, but they need to address the migration to digital technology.

Nationally, 86% of tickets are bought online.

But I want to find out how many passengers in West Cornwall buy their tickets online – if it is lower than 86%, as I suspect, that will strengthen the case for keeping a ticket office at Penzance.
