Fares on the £50 billion HS2 high-speed line must be affordable and should be "broadly comparable" to those charged on other lines, rail industry chiefs said today.
There have been concerns that premium fares will be charged for those using the new high-speed line which is due to open in 2026.
Today, rail industry body the Rail Delivery Group (RDG) said "setting fares at the right level" was one of its five key priorities for HS2.
The RDG went on: "Prices should be broadly comparable with those on other sections of the network to ensure the new services are affordable and encourage more rail travel on HS2 and across the existing railway.
"Tickets for HS2 should be sold through the same national retailing outlets as for the existing network."
Legislation for the first phase is currently going through Parliament, with a second, Y-shaped, phase, taking the line to north west and north east England due to be completed around 2032/33.

Yorkshire MPs are accusing the Government of abandoning rail investment in the North in favour of the South.
Some trains are more than 30 years old while on other services too few carriages mean hundreds of passengers are having to stand.
In a heated debate in Parliament there was a call for action to keep the region moving:
30 years ago today the miners' strike, which had started at Cortonwood a week earlier, was declared a national dispute, and pitmen throughout the country were asked to join forces on the picket line.
Nobody knew that day that the battle between union and the Government would last an entire year. As an industrial dispute it was unprecedented - rarely since has any battle left such an indelible mark on communities whose livelihoods depended on one major employer.

Thousands of renters in Yorkshire and northern Lincolnshire are too scared of being evicted to ask their private landlord to fix a problem in their home, according to Shelter research.
A YouGov poll found that 1 in 14 renters in the region avoided asking their landlord to repair a problem or improve conditions in the last year because they feared eviction.
More than a third (37%) of renters in the region have experienced problems with mould in their homes in the past year, while just under a quarter (23%) have lived with a leaking roof or windows, and 17% have had electrical hazards.
No-one should lose their home for asking their landlord to fix a problem, yet these shocking findings uncover the true scale of unfair evictions taking place across the country.
As homeownership drifts further out of reach, more of us are facing the prospect of settling down and bringing up a family in a rented home. But with private renters facing the worst housing conditions in the country - and the chance of eviction if they complain - generation rent is getting a raw deal. The government must protect England's nine million renters from unfair evictions.
– Campbell Robb, chief executive of Shelter
We're calling on people across the country to sign our petition and send the government a message that England's nine million renters deserve better, now.
