David Cameron pledges to freeze regulated rail fares for five years
Prime minister will announce consumer-friendly move – which could save 250,000 season-ticket holders an average of £400 – on Friday
More than 250,000 annual rail season-ticket holders could save an average of £400 over the next five years after David Cameron pledged that the Tories would freeze regulated fares in real terms.
In a consumer-friendly announcement on Friday designed to boost Tory fortunes amid flagging poll ratings, the prime minister will say that regulated rail fares would only be able to rise in line with the retail price index (RPI).
