Passengers face fare rises despite waves of train cancellations
Season ticket prices could increase by hundreds of pounds as consumer satisfaction slumps
Train passengers will learn of wage-busting fare increases this week, despite chaotic scenes at stations on the Northern network after a third successive wave of Sunday cancellations.
The fare increases – expected to amount to 3.5% from next January – will add hundreds of pounds to the cost of many season tickets even though new figures from Which? reveal that punctuality and customer satisfaction with Britain’s railways has slumped.
