Train fares rise – what does it mean for passengers?

02 January 2017

Responding to the fares rise Transport Focus chief executive, Anthony Smith, said:

“Passengers will be disappointed that fares will rise by 2.3 per cent – higher than the last two years. In return passengers will now want to see the industry’s investment deliver a more reliable day-to-day railway.

“Many commuters, in London and the south east in particular, have suffered poor performance and will feel anger at paying more and getting less. A fares freeze for Southern passengers would help to start rebuild trust following the months of misery they have experienced.”
