Welsh Government announces cap on rail fares

The Welsh Government has today announced that regulated rail fares in Wales will not rise above the rate of inflation until at least October 2018.
Monday 26 September 2016

This means that from January 2017 the maximum increase that Arriva Trains Wales can apply to regulated rail fares will be 1.9% - 0% above the Retail Price Index rate of inflation.

Economy and Infrastructure Secretary Ken Skates explained:

“For 2017, we have again determined that capping fares at 0% above the rate of inflation is preferable – providing continuity to existing rail users and ensuring that travelling by train remains attractive and affordable. Rail fare increases from January 2018 until the end of the current franchise in October 2018 will also be capped at the rate of inflation and not a penny more.”
