RMT Press Office:
Fare increases announced today "another kick in the teeth for British passengers"
General Secretary Mick Cash said;
"These fare increases are another kick in the teeth for British passengers who will still be left paying the highest fares in Europe to travel on rammed out, unreliable trains where private profit comes before public safety.
"For public sector workers and many others in our communities who have had their pay and benefits capped or frozen by this Government these fare increases are another twist of the economic knife while the private train companies are laughing all the way to the bank. "
