Facts & statistics

  • Fairer fares

    • Up to 2004, the Government set the average change in regulated fares at RPI-1; from 2004 to 2013 this changed to RPI+1 to switch a greater proportion of rail costs from taxpayers to passengers.
    • The average price of a season ticket is £2,386, equivalent to £4.97 per journey.
