RMT Senior Assistant General Secretary Mick Lynch said:
“The fact that this Government appears to be pushing ahead with yet another extortionate fare rise in January shows just how out of touch they are.
"This regressive fare increase hits the low paid hardest and will only serve to price more passenger off our railways and push even more people into their cars at a time when rail is in crisis.
"What we urgently need to see is bold and innovative leadership to give passengers what they want, a publicly owned railway with affordable and flexible ticketing that’s good value and suits their needs as part of the Covid-19 recovery.”
