Regulated rail fares in England will increase by up to 5.9% from March 5 next year, the Department for Transport has announced.

The rise was capped amid the “well below inflation”. Cost-of-living crisis, the government said.

Transport Secretary Mark Harper said today: “This is the biggest government intervention on fares yet.

“I limit the increase well below inflation to reduce the impact on passengers.

“It has been a difficult year and the impact of inflation is being felt across the UK economy. We don’t want to increase the problem.

“It’s a fair balance between the passengers who use our trains and the taxpayers who help fund them.”
