Rail fare changes from 2nd January 2014

Thursday, 5 December 2013

Following the announcement by the government of a further change to fares regulation from 2nd January 2014, train companies are now re-setting the fares that will apply for travel from the 2nd January onwards. The new fares will be released to the public later this month. In the meantime, tickets purchased for travel after the 2nd January, will continue to be sold at current prices.

From Abellio Greater Anglia's perspective, this is good news for commuters. We strongly support the government’s decision to scrap January’s above inflation average increase in season tickets and other regulated fares. This will encourage even more passengers to travel by rail, helping to sustain already significant investment in more trains, faster services and better stations.
