Fares increase for 2015
05 December 2014
Today the rail fares for 2015 were published.
David Sidebottom, director at the independent watchdog Passenger Focus, said:
“Although fares are still set to increase, passengers will be relieved to see that the average rise in England is capped at inflation instead of inflation plus one percent as was previously planned. It is also good to see that there is no flexibility for individual fares to go up by more than this. Both of these are things we have pushed for.
“This is a good time for the industry to look at the value for money of fares; only just over four in ten passengers are currently happy with the value of their ticket. What is now needed is a more consistent day-to-day service, and a flexible fares structure that delivers the type of products that passengers want.”
