The global pressure for smooth transportation in England is over, but that doesn't mean residents are happy about the current price of train travel, proposed fare raises, and job cuts at rail stations around the country.
Unions, transport campaigners and rail passenger groups have launched a day of action to protest at “massive” fare increases and cuts to jobs and services.
A series of demonstrations are being held at more than 40 railway stations including Waterloo, Euston and Kings Cross in London, Birmingham New Street, Newcastle upon Tyne, Liverpool Lime Street, Crewe, Glasgow Central and Edinburgh Waverley.
The Government is allowing train firms to raise fares by 3% more than RPI inflation from January, based on July’s inflation figure, which is published on Tuesday.
