  • Liberal Democrats call for fare freeze as cost of living crisis continues
  • Annual season ticket from Woking to Waterloo forecasted to reach £3,336

With a rail fare increase of 5.9%, the cost of an annual season ticket for Woking commuters will rise despite the cost of living crisis worsening.

Annual season ticket prices between Woking and London Waterloo will rise by a staggering £204.

Lib Dem Spokesperson for Woking, Will Forster, said:

"It is outrageous to hike rail fares in the middle of a cost of living crisis. This Conservative Government is completely out of touch."

"Ministers cannot keep turning a blind eye to these problems, especially given people are paying more for less on our rail network with fewer trains running or even on time."

"I am calling for a fair deal for people in Woking with an immediate fare freeze to help families struggling under the cost of living crisis this Government created."

"We should be making green forms of transport cheaper, yet this Conservative Government is determined to make rail more expensive than ever before."
