Rail fares rose by an average of 2.7 per cent in January 2020. Rail passengers are tired of rising fares and broken promises. It’s time for a complete overhaul of the fares system and a fairer way to calculate future level.
Our Future of rail report examines the current failings of the railways and what steps the Government needs to take to get them back on track.
Reopening a disused rail line can transform an area, but it happens all too rarely.
We're calling for a national programme of rail reopenings. We've identified 33 top-priority lines that would put 500,000 people in reach of the railways.
Our report shows that bus funding in England is almost £400 million a year lower than a decade ago. But a new National Bus Strategy offers the chance to give buses a brighter future.
Despite promises to the contrary, this year's rail fare rise of an average 2.7 per cent is still linked to the outdated and discredited Retail Price Index (RPI) figure, leaving passengers to dig a bit deeper into their pockets yet again.
Today we've published our Future of rail report which examines the current failings of the railways and what steps the Government needs to take to get them back on track.
