What a rude awakening coming back to work was last week. My train fare went up more than 30%. Two weeks ago we were both racign around Shanghai where taxis cost just 80p for the first 3kms. If only transport was that cheap here. Now that would be nice.
What the hell is going on? Each year its the rise in fares that greets us all as we go back to work? Has anyone really noticed a marked improvment in line with huges hikes in the income the new fares have give the train companies?
Time to get back on the bike.
