Partial success for TLC in fight against unfair fares

Tonbridge Line Commuters have been very active in the past year in campaigning against the very high costs of train travel from West Kent. This has resulted in a partial victory for TLC as season ticket prices have risen by 5.9% in West Kent when the minimum rise expected was 8% and was feared could be as high as 13%. A summary of all the work that TLC have undertaken in this area is given below:

Tonbridge Line Commuters would like to thank all those who signed the petition in August, as well as Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council for their support of our campaign. We would aslo like to thank our colleagues at Sevenoaks Rail Travellers Association who we have been working with to campaign against high rail fares in West Kent.
