Rail Fare Increases


Tracey responds to the latest news on rail fare increases:

“This is very disappointing news for Southeastern passengers who have experienced some of the largest fare rises in the country over the lifetime of the franchise and paid more than their fair share for using the railways. At a time when household budgets are stretched, the Government and Southeastern have a responsibility to ensure the cost of rail travel remains affordable while delivering better value for money and a 6.2% increase in rail fares must result in an improved level of service. I will continue to make representations on behalf of my constituents pressing the case for lower fares and improved services”.
