Rail passengers face price rise

Rail passengers across East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire will see an increase in rail fares from today.

Northern train

Both Northern and Transpennine are putting their prices up by just under 5% on average.

Nationally it's the biggest fare increase since 2013.

Industry bosses promise money raised will go straight into investment programmes.

Paul Barnfield, from Northern, says he believes passengers are already feeling the benefits of previous rises.

In our December timetable change we saw a significant uplift in terms of our Sunday service and we have refurbished about 70 of our own trains. That work is continuing. We are implementing free wi-fi and our timetable change in May will see an uplift in weekday services."
