Another rail fare hike

Following today’s news that rail fares are set for their biggest average increase in the last five years, Westmorland & Lonsdale MP Tim Farron commented on the impact this will have on commuters:

“It really is a kick in the teeth to those who pay a great deal of their hard-earned money each year to get on a train, which is often running late, in poor condition, and overcrowded.

He added:

“The Government could do more to help hard pressed fare-payers, but is simply choosing not to.”
