Rail fares

Stephen Hepburn MP for the Jarrow Constituency has voiced his concern that rail users in the UK will be hit by a further rise in ticket prices which will come into effect next year.

Stephen Hepburn MP said: 

“Every year, commuters are being asked to pay more money for bad train services. 

 “The Tory government has sat back and allowed private train companies to cash in while people’s pay has been held back. Continuous fare rises undermine urgent action to tackle the climate emergency by pricing people off the railway.

“Labour will bring our railways into public ownership so they are run in the interests of passengers, not private profit.”
