TMBC pushing for cheaper rail fares

Following lobbying from Tonbridge Line Commuters, Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council are now actively lobbying senior railway figures and the Department for Transport for cheaper and fairer train fares.

At a Rail Forum organised by TMBC on 17th October 2011, two TLC committee members spoke about our concerns about how quickly rail fares were rising and the likely impact this would have on the West Kent economy. We also distributed our research concerning possible season ticket prices in 2014. TMBC took this on board and have pledged to help fight these rises as reported in Kent Online.
