The whole rail commuting country is in a tizzy, and justifiably so: from next year, passengers on a huge number of routes could be paying at least 6.2% more for their rail fares. That's twice the rate of inflation and could work out at more than £100 a week for some.
OK, so it's not strictly TfL's dastardliness, but even before yesterday's fares rises, rail fares here were significantly more expensive than in other countries – on average season tickets are 75% more expensive than the next most expensive in Europe which are in Germany, the Netherlands and France. Ouch! Still, at least we in the UK enjoy a 75% better service in all measurable ways, right? Right?
Mark my words, TfL will be next with the money grabbing.
