Last week The Wanstead Post published an open letter about the continuing appalling service on the Central Line.
The letter has prompted the launch of a campaign to #improvethecentralline.
If you would like to contribute to efforts to improve the service please see below for some ideas.
The Central Line is one of the most important on the tube network. It is the main arterial route through Central London and delivers passengers to areas such as the City of London and the West End. For many people it is their only way of travelling into Central London.
The service on the line is appalling and appears to be deteriorating. This dire situation has been going on for day after day after day.
The knock-on effect
This awful situation leads to considerable stress, anxiety, lateness, increased workloads, loss of pay for freelancers, lack of time with children and loved ones, reduced leisure time and many other negative effects on those who have no other choice but to use the Central Line.
Transport for London, the Mayor of London, Central Line management and staff as well as passengers must come together to address the problems and find innovative solutions.

Letters about the campaign have already been sent to The Mayor of London and the Managing Director of London Underground. The more letters they receive the more likely they are to do something.
The campaign is in email contact with the Chair of the London Assembly Transport Committee who may set up a passenger meeting with Central Line management. There will be further news on this when it is confirmed.
