A statement from us on 2017 fares

Press Releases   •   Dec 02, 2016 09:30 GMT

Following today's statement (Friday 2 December 2016) by the Rail Delivery Group (RDG) on the average 2.3 per cent national train fare rise for next year, please see below a statement from Southeastern - which has a lower annual average fare increase of 1.8 per cent:

A Southeastern spokesman said: "The overall average fare rise for Southeastern next year is 1.8 per cent, which is below the national average of 2.3 per cent. It is also slightly under the national rise set by the government's for regulated fares of 1.9 per cent - which is for season tickets and peak time fares

“We understand that value for money is a priority for our passengers and that's why we are offering discounts and freezing prices on specific off peak fares, which are the ones under our control.

“For example, our online advance fares, which are already our cheapest tickets, are being frozen at January 2016 prices.

“We also offer a range of special offers and promotional fares on other Off-Peak travel. These include our Kids For A Quid offer, for one adult with a valid ticket to pay just £1 each for up to four children ** as well as our Super Off-peak fares.

"Fares revenue contributes to the maintenance and future investment of services, as well as rail infrastructure. Over the next three years, we are investing millions of pounds refurbishing trains and stations, and providing better quality information to help people with their journeys.

“In addition to this, we have taken on 300 extra frontline staff to assist passengers, we have invested five million pounds in repainting and revamping all the 165 stations we manage, and one third of our entire train fleet are currently undergoing a rigorous refurbishment.”
