Tim Farron said:

“Thousands of hard working commuters are learning the news that they are facing yet another hike on their travel costs.

“It really is a kick in the teeth to those who pay thousands of pounds each year to get on a train, which is often running late, in poor condition, and overcrowded.

“The Government could do more to help hard pressed fare-payers, but is choosing not to.

“Behind the Government’s warm words, is a complete lack of action.”
