Pas­sen­gers hit with rise in rail fares

Bath Chronicle - - NEWS -

Rail pas­sen­gers will have to pay more for their train tick­ets af­ter Christ­mas - de­spite calls for a price freeze. The Rail De­liv­ery Group has an­nounced that from Jan­uary rail fares will in­crease by an av­er­age of 3.1 per cent. The rise is slightly less than the 3.4 per rise at the start of this year, how­ever, many com­muters will have to shell out more for their rail travel. Na­tional Rail has re­leased the rail fare prices from Jan­uary 2 and it isn’t good news for many. For many pop­u­lar routes, the price of an an­nual sea­son ticket will in­crease on Jan­uary 2. Here are some of the routes from Bath and Som­er­set that will be hit by the price hike. If you re­new or ex­tend any sea­son ticket you cur­rently hold, you will pay the cur­rent price, avoid­ing the price hike on Jan­uary 2.
