SOURCE GUARDIAN: Rail fares to rise by average of 3.5% in JanuaryRail fares will rise by an average of 3.5% in January, with some increasing by up to 5.5%, adding hundreds of pounds to the cost of commuters' season tickets. Calls for the government to curb planned rises intensified as Labour said it would cap fares on every route and indicated it was considering an election pledge to cap increases at the rate of inflation. Protests took place at stations across the country as campaigners pointed out that ticket prices have risen nearly four times as fast as wages. The 2015 rise will mean fares have gone up by a quarter since the coalition government took power.
