A rail passenger group said the government still needed to do more to control how much people paid for tickets.
Today the Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin announced rail companies would not be able to increase their fares by more than 6.1% from January when a new cap comes into effect.
But the Essex Rail Users Federation said that restriction did not go far enough.
Chairman Derek Monnery said: "Rail fares have to be capped at inflation. The investment they are putting into the system is reaching a peak and that will tail off before long.
"Rail increases don't help, people have static wages and to increase rail fares by inflation plus 1% is too much."
The average fare increase will be 4.1% - based on July 2013's inflation figure plus another 1% - meaning some ticket prices will rise at a slower rate.
Politicians today called on the government to reinstate former Foreign Office minister Alistair Burt, who lost his job in the cabinet reshuffle earlier this week.
Both sides of the House of Commons cried "bring him back" as the Foreign Secretary praised Mr Burt for his work in the Middle East.
The North East Bedfordshire MP had served in the Foreign Office as a minister since the coalition was formed at the last general election.
Today, Mr Burt was on the Commons backbenches as Foreign Secretary William Hague made a statement on negotiations to resolve the crisis in Syria.
Mr Hague said: "It is impossible to overstate the challenges and the gravity of the threats in the region if current openings and opportunities are not brought to fruition.
"Since you are in the House, I want to pay tribute to your work on these issues over the last three and a half years."
MPs from both sides of the House of Commons have paid tribute to North East Bedfordshire MP Alistair Burt who lost his Foreign Office job in David Cameron's reshuffle.
Foreign Secretary William Hague praised Mr Burt for his work in the Middle East and other MPs said his departure was a very significant loss for the government.
