Rail fares for Thurrock commuters set to rise in January

RAIL fares will rise by an average of 1.1% from January 2, 2016, rail industry body the Rail Delivery Group (RDG) has announced.

The RDG, which represents train operators and Network Rail, said it was the smallest annual rise for six years.

RDG chief Paul Plummer said: "We know that nobody likes to pay more to travel by train, especially to get to work."

But he added that money from fares now almost covers rail’s daily operating costs.
