Rail passengers will today learn just how much their season tickets will rise in January next year.
The new-year rise, determined by today's RPI inflation figure, will take the overall increase in fares to around 24.7% during this Parliament, according to the Campaign for Better Transport (CBT).
The current annual price-rise formula is for regulated fares, which include season tickets, to rise by the rate of RPI plus 1%, which could see average fares going up around 3.6% if RPI remains at its June 2014 level of 2.6%. Train companies also have a "flex" rule which allows them to raise some regulated fares by 2% above the average as long the overall average remains at the RPI plus 1% level. This means some fares could go by around 5.6% in the new year.
The TUC says people are being "increasingly squeezed" by the fare hikes.
