UKTrainSim said:Radio 4 ( You and Yours ) has just given a six minute report that walk on "Saver Returns" are likely to be abolished as of Jan 1st 2007. The Dept. for Transport is strongly considering removing the legal requirement for TOC's to provide discounted walk on fares... ie. The Saver Returns. These were guaranteed when the railways were de-nationalised to appease critics of privatisation...now removal will lead to thousands of passengers facing rises of over 100 % and turning their backs on the railways !
Expensive rail tickets for 2007 with the looks of it! :cry:
