Rail passengers are being hit in the pocket as inflation-busting fare rises take effect.
Regulated fares, which include season tickets, are increasing by an average of 4.2%, with the overall average rise for all tickets being 3.9%
Campaign groups have pointed out today's increase is the 10th successive above-inflation rise, with some rail season ticket holders seeing their fares rise by more than 50% in the last 10 years. Also, the TUC has said that fares have risen far faster than wages since the recession in 2008.
ScotRail fares will rise by 3.9%.
"We have worked hard to keep the increase down to a level that continues to offer value for money. At the same time, our approach enables us to continue to invest in improvements including more and faster services and better facilities atstations and on trains.”
