Stop the rail fare rip-off – join #FareFail on 3 January


In 2012 our overpriced rail fares have been hiked again.

Our trains are already the most expensive in Europe!

In three years’ time ticket prices will be 24% more expensive than now, yet passengers continue to be stuck with overcrowded, unreliable trains, with less staff on trains and less staff at stations.

This Government is taking us further and further away from the value for money train service we all need. This month it's time to say enough is enough.

Join Together for Transport, Bring Back British Rail, Campaign for Better Transport and Climate Rush for a week of #FareFail actions starting on 3 January.

Rob Jenks is a community organiser at Together for Transport.
