Rail fares are set to rise by an average of 2.3% from January 2, it has been announced.
The increase covers both regulated fares, which includes season tickets, and unregulated fares, such as off-peak leisure tickets.
The rise is higher than last year’s, which was an increase of 1.1%, and the highest since 2014.
Meanwhile, there are hopes that spare rolling stock from the Gatwick Express could be transferred to Arriva Trains Wales in a bid to ease passenger congestion.
Commenting on recent reports of the possibility, an Arriva Trains Wales spokeswoman said: “We continue to work closely with the Welsh Government to explore all available options to secure extra trains for our network and are striving to identify solutions that could deliver additional short-term capacity.”
