Plans for 'simpler, more modern' UK train fare system to be announced
Ministers to unveil plans to overhaul ticketing system and machines to ensure passengers get cheapest option
Rail passengers could be given a boost under government plans to make it clearer which is the cheapest ticket option available to them.
Ministers are planning an overhaul of the complex train ticketing system, under which many passengers end up paying more than is necessary for their travel. It is understood that rail firms face being ordered to redesign thousands of station ticket machines as part of the measures, which are due to be announced next month.
