'It's more than half my mortgage repayments': Guardian readers on train fare rises
Rail fare bosses claim increases will help improve services. We hear from people affected by the price increases
Commuters are protesting at about 40 train stations as season tickets for many passengers go up by more than £100, with campaigners warning that many people were being “priced off” UK railways.
Commuter routes with £100-plus increases include Liverpool to Manchester (up £108 to £3,152), Maidenhead to London (up £104 to £3,092) and Elgin to Inverness (up £100 to £2,904).
We’d like to find out your views and experiences about train ticket prices. How much has your rail fare increased by? Are the annual ticket price rises forcing you to re-think how you travel or even change your job?
