BBC discover coach commuters priced off rail

BBC Radio 4 has followed up my Today programme interview on Monday opposing rail fare hikes.

They report from Grain and Strood after I told them that many people had to get up at 5 or 6 in the morning to get the coach to London because they can’t afford the train.

The report highlights the increased numbers which have had to switch to usually slower coach travel after the last Labour government singled out Southeastern commuters as guinea pigs for an RPI+3% fares regime.
