Rail fares in England are to rise by 3.8% in March, the biggest increase in nine years.
Many locals are worried by the increase in rail fares as they are already facing soaring taxes and bills. The cost of living has gone up and families are struggling with finances.
Previously, rail fare increases were traditionally implemented on the first working day of each year.
However, due to economic effects of Covid-19, increases were delayed until March to give people more time to save money.
There are several ways in which commuters are trying to save money. For example booking in advance to ensure they are able to save some money.
Other ways include purchasing a railcard to receive discount when purchasing tickets. There are several types for different groups such as 16-25 year olds, Veterans, Disabled people and many more.
