‘End the Rail Rip-Off’ says Crawley Council Leader

The call comes just as prices have been announced to increase for another year.



Cllr Peter Lamb who is also the Labour Parliamentary Candidate for Crawley has called for an end to the ‘Rail Rip-Off’ after it was announced that rail fares are to increase for another year.

Cllr Lamb says that the price of a season ticket between Three Bridges and central London has risen by over £1,100 since the Conservatives returned to Government while at the same time average real wages have fallen.
