NEC Staement - New Year rail fare increases
#1
 
The Liberal Party deplores proposed price increases for rail fares with customers paying up to 3.6% more than they were last year, for prices already the highest in Europe.
 
Rail fares have gone up three times faster than wages since the Tory party came into power in 2010.
 
Not only are our trains among the most expensive in Europe, they’re also among the worst performing: in the run-up to Christmas, 72.5% of services operated by First Rail Hull were late or cancelled,
 
These price increases will deter the customer shift from car usage to public transport that we need to reduce congestion , improve  air quality and create a more balanced public transport infrastructure in this country.
 
They will also have a disproportionately damaging impact on rural communities.
