There is a current Government consultation, open until 22 March 2016, on the forthcoming renewal of the West Midlands Rail Franchise.  Details and response instructions are available at: 

https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/west-midlands-rail-franchise

 

WoW is currently putting together a group response, focusing on the provision of services and facilities for people who wish to use bikes either for part or the whole of their journeys.

 

The more people respond, individually and collectively, the more the franchise authorities will see that there is demand for a franchisee to cater for people cycling.  It doesn't need to be a work of literature or a polished political response, so please respond to it if you are concerned about this aspect of the rail services in this area in the next few years.
