Responding to union reports of fare rises, a spokesman for the Rail Delivery Group, which represents Network Rail and train operators, said:

“The TSSA’s figures are misleading in the extreme focussing only on the most expensive fares. The average price paid for a single journey was £5.17 last year, compared to £5.14 in real terms in the mid 1990s. This helps to explain why passenger numbers have almost doubled over the same period, contributing to a fivefold increase in money going back to government to reinvest in a better railway.”
