Rail Fares 2 Weeks, 2 Days ago  
Set to increase by 2.7% in January.

Making the cost of the average season ticket more than £3,000, for the first time.

Fares have risen over twice more than wages, in the past 10 years.

42% - compared to 18%.


Most need to run a car too...

Ignoring the car's purchase costs, the annual running cost of an average care is £2,000.

For tax, insurance, servicing, fuel etc.

Thus an individual's annual transport cost will take around £5,000 from disposable income (after tax).

Answer; work at home or in beautiful hotels abroad whilst swimming; you can pay for a lot of nights and restaurant meals every year with £5000!

Do true, had to do that in my past around UK and USA. Claimed back expenses from the inland revenue.

I see there is another train strike again, from South Western Railway.

Their journeys are very scenic, yet however their trains are always packed no matter what time you get on them, especially heading towards Bournemouth.

When we use our cars the elite try and make us feel guilty. Public transport is shit in UK and Ireland. The next Transport minister should visit Canada and Vermont to see how they do it properly.
