Rejected petition Have all trains stop at every station on the Wales rail network.
The current situation, especially during the busy rush hour/ commuter periods, where not all trains are obliged to stop at every station limits a person’s options when it comes to using public transportation for their daily commute.
The simple act of ensuring all trains stop at every station if requested in Wales would mean that more people could use the train, especially in more rural areas where public transport is already very limited. This would have many benefits, both to the individual and also to the wider community in Wales. The most obvious of which being the environmental benefits of having fewer people use their car, but would also include financial benefits to the individual as (currently at least) using public transport is much cheaper than filling a car with fuel.
