#TellTracy about your rail experiences

The Mayor of West Yorkshire is launching a campaign to encourage the people of West Yorkshire to #TellTracy about issues they have experienced with the rail network across the North.

Has your life been affected by the lack of a decent rail service in the North?

Tracy Brabin, Mayor of West Yorkshire, has launched a campaign to encourage people who live or work in West Yorkshire to #TellTracy about issues they have experienced with the rail network across the North.  

The campaign will run throughout February and will tell the real stories of people in the region that are negatively impacted by the lack of investment in rail services in West Yorkshire.   

The stories will be presented to the Transport Select Committee where the Mayor will be giving evidence on the Integrated Rail Plan on Thursday 24 February in Leeds.  


Government haven’t listened to Northern leaders. But they can’t ignore the people of the North. The Government promised two, brand new rail lines for West Yorkshire – High Speed 2 and Northern Powerhouse Rail. But then, they scrapped them, despite the massive benefits they’d bring.

Your experience matters

Are you often late to work because of train delays? 

Have you had to turn down a work or learning opportunity, because there isn’t a train to get you there on time? 

Or do you just avoid train travel altogether, after waiting for a delayed or cancelled service one too many times. 

If so, then I want you to write to me, so I can take your stories to Government and demand better for our region

Get involved

Members of the public are invited to tell their story by emailing telltracy@westyorks-ca.gov.uk or by filling in the form below. Please tell us where you travel to and from, so we can build a picture of people’s experiences across West Yorkshire.
