After the Prime Minister's broken promise to hard pressed commuters to cap this year’s rail fare rises, the misery for passengers is set to continue with the Government’s plans to introduce new Super Peak tickets.

At a time when transport costs are rising and people across the country are facing a real squeeze, commuters paying thousands for a season ticket should not be forced off peak-time trains. If they get away with introducing these new Super Peak tickets, the Government’s plans suggest peak time prices could go up by a staggering 40 per cent on top of planned fare rises over just five years. I hope that they will think again.
