The Tories are hitting passengers with eye watering fare increases. Since 2010, fares have risen by 25 per cent on average, three times faster than wages.
Many people will return to work after Christmas on Monday 4 January and it’s an opportunity to talk to commuters about this important issue.
The Labour Party are running a national day of action on rail fares to highlight the steep rise in fares since 2010.
