Welcome news on rail fare increases

The Government has promised to cap rail fares to the Retail Price Index +1% for the next two years.

Greg commented:

"Before this commitment, fare increases have been at RPI +3% so this is extremely welcome news.

"Southeastern still has the right to vary the fare from any particular station by up to 5% on top as long as the average increase is at the national cap. I am meeting with Southeastern's Managing Director very shortly and I will be looking to persuade him not to increase the fares from our local stations by more than the national average."
