Northern Rail: Andy Burnham calls for temporary fare cut
Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham has called for a temporary fare cut on rail routes affected by an interim timetable. Northern has aborted about 2,000 services since new timetables started on 20 May, with more than 200 cancelled or heavily delayed on Friday. Mr Burnham said Northern tickets should also be accepted by other operators. The temporary timetable removes 6% of the operator's total services until a full timetable is expected to resume at the end of July. The timing of all Govia Thameslink Railway and most Northern trains was changed, but all new journeys had to be individually approved by Network Rail.
