Regulated fares will not rise on average by more than the rate of inflation, the Department of Transport has said, as passengers await potential rail fare rises. A spokeswoman for the department added:
The Government understands concerns rail passengers have about the costs of fares and the impact they have on household budgets.
That is why next year, for the first time in a decade, regulated fares will not rise on average by more than the rate of inflation, offering relief for families and the hardworking people.
