UK rail fare hikes? You are joking!

Attention UK Policy Makers: when election time rolls around again, someone put train fare subsidies on their platform. This is a magical position to have, helps the common… well, every commuter in Britain; promotes UK tourism, and is an effective solution to reducing air travel (its cheaper/faster/more toxic to fly London-Manchester then to train it), therefore gets the Eco-Vote. Train fares don’t have to be this expensive.

BBC NEWS | UK | Train passengers face fare rise

  • Passengers face above-inflation price hikes for rail tickets, train companies have announced.
  • The Association of Train Operating Companies said the money was needed to pay for ongoing service improvements.
  • “Train operators will continue to raise their game, delivering further improvements to the railway and enhancing the travel experience of passengers.”
