The Government set the fares for all regulated fares, which include season tickets, in line with July’s Retail Price Index (RPI) of 3.6%.
East Midlands Trains has today confirmed that the average increase across all of its fares will be below the RPI rate at 3.3%.
As well as paying for the running of the day-to-day rail network, fares are helping government to support the biggest investment in railway since Victorian times.
East Midlands Trains, the UK’s most punctual long-distance train operator for over eight years, is continuing to invest in improvements for customers.
Jake Kelly, Managing Director of East Midlands Trains, said: “As well as helping to fund the biggest national investment in the railways since Victorian times through increased payments to Government, the money from fares is also helping to drive many real improvements for customers across the East Midlands Trains network.”
