In January 2014 the overall average increase in rail fares was 2.8%.
Train companies supported the Chancellor’s 5 December announcement that the average increase in 2014 Season tickets, and other regulated fares, would be in line with inflation rather than 1% above.
We want to help explain why some fares change in price and on this site you'll find:
- Tips on how to save money on rail travel
- How money from fares is spent improving services, trains & stations
- More information on rail travel and the railway
Most prices change on 2 January each year. Fares for journeys wholly within London, however, may change on another date.
