Arthur Leathley, Chair of London TravelWatch, said:

While passengers will be a little relieved that train fares will be increasing by less than inflation, this is still a significant rise that may make travel unaffordable for some – particularly given how many people are already struggling with living costs.

With many passengers already feeling like they’re not getting good value for money, this just shows how longer-term fares and ticketing reform on the railways could not be more urgent.

We’re still waiting to see how much fares will increase on TfL services, but it’s particularly important that bus fares are kept low. More people use the bus every day in London than any other type of transport, and they’re most used by lower income Londoners, so it’s really important they’re protected from unaffordable price increases.
