Since March 2017 Jon Cruddas MP has been campaigning for better services at Rainham c2c station. He has contacted residents via post, online consultations and postcard consultations handed out by his Havering Action Team outside Rainham station. The response has been huge. Over 700 commuters contacted Jon expressing their concerns. Questions that were put to commuters focused on services during peak times, for example:
"Would you like to see more carriages during peak times e.g. morning and evening?"
