Rail fares are changing

From 3 March 2024

The Department for Transport has announced that rail fares are set to rise by an average of 4.9%* on 3 March 2024. To minimise the impact on rail users, this figure is 4.1 percentage points lower than RPI** (a measure of inflation historically used to determine rail prices).

All money from ticket sales is passed back to the government to help run and improve the railway.

*The 4.9% is an average across all regulated fares. They can be rounded up or down however to create sensible prices.

** The 2024 fares increase is based on the July 2023 RPI rate, a measure of inflation historically used to determine rail prices.
