In response to the Campaign for Better Transport research on rail fares, a spokesperson for the Association of Train Operating Companies said:

“This is a flimsy piece of research that does not stand up to scrutiny, focusing on just one season ticket out of tens of thousands available. Next year, the average commuter will pay just over £2,000 a year or less than six pounds a day to travel to work and back home again by train.

“In many other countries, the state chooses to subsidise the railways more heavily than in Britain. In this country, the long-standing government approach to sustain investment in the railways is to cut the contribution from taxpayers and increase the share paid by passengers.”
