HARLOW Town Station ticket office is set to close under rail firms’ plans for the mass closure of England’s ticket offices.
The consultation, which was due to close on Wednesday 26th July, has been extended to Friday 1st September after public outcry reports Harlow Save Our Ticket Offices (SOTO).

Harlow SOTO askED all the local political leaders to state how they feel regarding ticket office closures – are they for or against?
Both East Herts Council and Broxbourne Council have come out against plans to close ticket offices. Why is there silence from Harlow Council and Essex County Council?
Campaigners would like to thank the 3,000 people across town who have signed petitions against the closures, and assure signatories that these have been sent to be counted towards the consultation count against the plans.
It will stop pensioners from having a discount with their bus passes and also having to pay by card when they would rather pay by cash
It will stop pensioners from using their bus passes for a discount on rail travel because you can’t do it on the machine
It will stop people from travelling if they don’t feel confident using the machines
Just don't do it.. It effects the elderly, the disabled, and will leave people less confident in travelling...
Harlow ticket office should not shut under any circumstances due to myself and many people in Harlow require the ticket office to remain open. If you need to make cuts there should be other ways rather than cutting a needed service from thousands of people including myself. You are making me stay at home unable to travel.
