Passengers hit by inflation-busting fare rases

January 12, 2008
Money and Tickets Fares increased by around 5%-6 % from January 1st, that’s two or three times higher than the current annual inflation rate of 2.1%. Some examples fare increases are:

  • Peak Return to Manchester: up 5.38% from £4.65 to £4.90
  • Off-Peak Return to Manchester: up 5.66% from £2.65 to £2.80
  • Peak Single to Manchester: up 7.14% from £2.80 to £3.00
  • 1 Month Season Ticket: up 4.98% from £70.30 to £73.80

Passengers could be forgiven for asking how such above-inflation increases can be justified when they are still waiting for longer trains and improved facilities.
