David Da Costa and Paul Gentleman, co-founders of BRAG, are to meet with Stephen Byers on Wednesday 16th January. In addition to this we will also be meeting with Theresa May MP, shadow transport spokesman, and hopefully Don Foster MP, transport spokesman for the Liberal Democrats. We will post the results of these meetings as soon as possible.

The Artificial Intelligence module for our future National Railway Optimization Application is being developed by Web Sidekicks, these guys know their job!


We have had an overwhelming response to this campaign. Please keep visiting this site for upto date information. As you may have seen, BBC’s Watchdog, Meridien Television and Sky News have all conducted polls asking whether people would support a boycott of the rail network on 1st March. There has been an amazing response with an average of 90% in favour.

We have to maintain this momentum in the media to keep this issue at the fore front. Already we have made appearances on GMTV (twice), BBC Breakfast News, London Today, Meridien and Sky News to name but a few. Radio interviews on Radio 4, Capital FM, BBC Scotland and Radio 5 Live. There has also been countless articles in the national and regional press.

We have also been asked to appear on the Jonathon Dimbleby show (ITV), Sunday with Adam Boulton (Sky News) and On the Record (BBC).


By coordinating and representing the views of all rail passengers and by registering their interests and concerns as to the state of our national rail service, we will put pressure on this government to take note of public opinion. We therefore invite every rail user to register their comments which will be used as part of our national effort to lobby the rail industry and the government into acting upon the concerns of all rail passengers.

We also offer support and advice to interested parties within the rail industry who wish to communicate directly with their customer base.

BRAG has been set up by passengers, for passengers and is totally independent of any official government or industry body. Its associated membership base makes it by far the largest passenger representation group within the UK.
