RMT on this mornings announcement of 1% increase in tube fares in 2016.

General Secretary Mick Cash said;

"Travellers in and out of London are forking out huge sums for their rail and tube travel and they rightly expect a safe, reliable and well staffed service but that is being compromised against a background of cuts which is leaving stations and trains dangerously overcrowded.

"With the transport funding settlement this week set to unleash a further wave of cuts,  passengers are rightly demanding to know where their money is going and RMT will continue to fight alongside transport user groups for safe and secure services that meet surging passenger demand. "
