Bookmark

Average rail fares for train services in Gedling borough are to rise by 1.5% next year.

The rise in fares on East Midlands Trains services will come into force from January 2, 2017.

East Midlands Trains say this is below the July inflation of 1.9% which is used by the Government to set all regulated fares, including season tickets, and is also below the national average increase for 2017.

The firm, who are the UK’s most punctual long-distance train operator for over seven years, also said they are currently investing £13million in improvements for customers.

Jake Kelly, managing director of East Midlands Trains, said: “We have worked hard to offer the best value travel for our customers. The changes in January will mean fares for East Midlands Trains customers will on average reduce in real terms.

“As well as helping to fund the biggest national investment in the railways since Victorian times through increased payments to Government, the money from fares is also helping to drive many real improvements for customers across our network.”

From January a single ticket during peak time from Carlton to Nottingham will cost you £3.70 – a rise of 10p.

A return to Lincoln from Carlton will cost £12.70 during peak time – a rise of 20p. An off-peak ticket will cost £11.50 – a rise of 30p
