January 2020 Rail Fares Now Available
The Government set the fares for all regulated fares, which include season tickets, in line with July’s Retail Price Index (RPI).
Nationally, the average fare rise is 2.7% - the third year in a row that train companies have held the average change across all fares below the July RPI rate of inflation, which regulated fares are pegged to.
East Midlands Railway has confirmed the average increase across all of its fares will be below the national average at 2.6%.
As well as paying for the running of the day-to-day rail network, fares are helping government to support the biggest investment in railway since Victorian times.
This includes the Midland Main Line Upgrade, which is creating space for thousands more seats, quicker journeys and a simpler timetable from December 2020.
