East Midlands Trains has announced its brand new fares which will come into effect from 2 January 2019.

Tickets from the 2nd January 2019 can now be bought via the website or at ticket offices now.

Regulated fares, including season tickets, are set by the Government in line with July’s Retail Price Index (RPI) of 3.2%.

East Midlands Trains has confirmed that the average increase across all of its fares will be 2.7%, which is below the RPI rate.

As well as paying for the running of the day-to-day rail network, fares help the government to support the biggest investment in the railway since Victorian times.

For East Midlands Trains passengers, they continue to be served by the UK’s most punctual long-distance train services.

Around £1 billion is being spent on the Midland Main Line which represents the biggest investment since the line was opened in the mid 1800s.

What did the officials say?

Jake Kelly, Managing Director for East Midlands Trains, said:

“Money from fares is ultimately helping to deliver the improvements to the railway that customers want and to boost the wider economy.

“On the East Midlands Trains network, customers are benefitting from over a billion pounds worth of investment to provide more reliable and improved services.”
