Rail Fares Set To Rise

Rail Fares are set to rise by just over 4% in the new year.  The rise should actually have been greater but for intervention by the government to limit it to 1% over inflation - the original target being 3% plus inflation.

Annual season tickets from Colchester to London will increase to £4,556 from £4,376 and tickets from Manningtree will increase to £5,060 from £4,860.

Interestingly the price of an annual season ticket from Shenfield to London will actually fall by £16 (0.6%) to £2,704.
