Fares rises 'will price people off trains'. Yes, it's the annual fare rise.
- They're probably right but only in the short run. In the long run things would be a lot better if we abolished fare control and allowed fares to rise.
- This is not a passenger group it is a state-appointed Quango and one that keeps changing its name - I can just about remember when it was known as the Rail Users' Consultative Committee.
- Isn't it funny how while car and and plane costs (minus taxes) keep coming down rail costs stay more or less the same?
