Increase in Regulated Fares condemned

7 September 2014

TSSA General Secretary Manuel Cortes has condemned George Osborne's decision to increase Regulated Fares by 2.5%.

"The Chancellor has some brass neck in presenting this 2.5% increase as a good news story when it means he will have increased rail fares by a huge 24% since moving into Number 11 Downing Street in 2010.
"If he was genuinely interested in helping passengers who have seen their real wages fall over the past four years, he would have actually frozen fares, not hiked them upwards again."
