Rail fares expected to increase next year

View original Rail fares expected to increase next year

Rail ticket prices are expected to increase by 2.7% in January 2020, with some having to pay more than a £100 more on their season ticket. This rise is significantly higher than CPI inflation and will “come as a blow to passengers” according to Chief Executive of Campaign for Better Transport, Darren Shirley. The price increases come despite rail disruption, delays, and overcrowding this summer caused by cancellations, staff shortages and floods.

The Transport Knowledge Hub is a fantastic resource and I’m really excited about the opportunity to explore how we can maximise its use among transport stakeholders. In the South East Midlands, investing in local transport infrastructure has unlocked significant economic growth. The Hub offers a formal framework for sharing expertise with decision makers around the UK, as well as learning from the experience of others. This will enable more investment to be directed towards  local and sustainable forms of transport.
