MEMBERS of Barking Gospel Oak Rail Users Group (BGORUG) have demanded a meeting with Transport for London (TfL) over the continued cancellations and overcrowding that have been plaguing the Gospel Oak to Barking service.
BGORUG said a total of 13 services were cancelled on August 29 between 14.50 and 23.15, a figure disputed by TfL.
BGORUG also claim the 15-minute frequency service on the 12-mile route through north and east London, has at times had 45-minute gaps in services.
The service – run by Arriva Rail London on behalf of TfL – is operated by a fleet of eight
Class 172 DMUs, with a minimum of six needed for daily service.
