Love rail protest at Oxford Rail Station


Green supporters and Councillors asked rail commuters to sign a huge Valentine's card expressing their love for rail travel - at the same time lamenting the huge increases in rail fares.

Says City Green Group leader, Cllr David Williams, who will be at the protest: On 2 January, rail fares soared above inflation for the tenth year running. They have increased almost three times faster than wages and are now 26% higher than they were before the recession. Is it any wonder we pay more than anywhere else in Europe?
