To reduce the over-crowding on the trains from Harrogate to Leeds and Leeds to Harrogate.
People are crammed onto the trains standing up in the lies and entrances. This is a major H&S issue as people could be injured by the doors or they could fall over in the case of the train making an emergency stop. People have been known to faint on the trains due to the lack of air.
With the recent train fair rise people should be entitled to a seat and not made to stand for 45 minutes.
Northern Rail should reduce the cost of the fair, put more carriages on or provide compensation to the people who have to stand.
