Government allow massive rail fare increases

The government have just agreed to impose massive rail fare increases on Surrey commuters. A Guildford to London season ticket will go up £200, to nearly £3,300 a year. The increase is also £200 from Woking, to £2,952. The 6% rises are nearly double inflation.

And over the next three years, fares will rise by 20%.

So while Surrey’s Tory MPs claim their rail fares for work, they are increasing rail fares for Surrey residents at twice the rate of inflation. We’re not all in this together!
