Freeze Rail Fares - we want the government to cancel the 3.6% increase in rail fares
This petition had 391 supporters
Commuters and other rail users face a 3.6% increase in rail fares in January 2018, an increase which is well above rises in wages and salaries. This increase is nothing to do with investment in the rail network but reflects the fact that inflation (RPI) has gone up as a direct result in the fall in the value of sterling (the fall being triggered by the result of the EU referendum).
The government has frozen increases in fuel duty for the last 7 years so we believe it should use its powers to freeze the planned increase in rail fares in 2018.
