Network Rail to end station toilet charges in 2019 [BBC News]

Date: 02/03/2018

The boss of Network Rail says the company will scrap toilet charges at all of its stations from 2019. Recent figures obtained by the BBC revealed Network Rail collected £4.8m in the last financial year, from people paying to use its toilets. Chief executive Mark Carne said it was 'quite wrong to penalise people when they are in discomfort'. Charges at stations in London, Leeds, Glasgow, Manchester, Liverpool and Edinburgh range from 30p to 40p.
