Southern Rail and Gatwick Express fares to rise by average of 2.97%

The rise will take place on the 2nd Jan 2019.



Not the best news to start a new year with but Govia Thameslinks say that the rise is keeping below the rate of inflation and less than the national average.

Despite the rise Southern’s value advance fares have frozen for the 11th year running meaning passengers can still travel between Brighton and London for as little as £5.

The Gatwick Express single far to/from Victoria has also been frozen for the 6th year and remains at £19.90.

Southern is also allowing accompanied children to travel for a flat fare of £2 on many journeys – a price they say which is half of that offered in other parts of the country.
