After beginning a regular commute in 2017, on what was & remains to be, incredibly poor public transport, affecting my physical and mental health and influencing the decisions I made about where I could live and work, I decided enough was enough.
It wasn't just me this service was affecting; it was everybody I knew, up and down the Calder Valley, at work, at home, friends near and far. We had all reached the end of our tether.
On 23rd Oct 2017, I created Northern Resist. Northern Resist is a Facebook group campaigning for better rail services in the North, and it is also much, much more than that. It is a place for:
Real-time travel information;
Solidarity with our fellow commuters;
Sharing stories of the trials and tribulations of Northern;
Humour in times of need;
Support in times of chaos;
Healthy debate about solutions
