Train fares to be simplified.

TRAIN companies are planning to simplify the range of tickets they supply. The easier-to-understand system could be in place next winter following complaints by passenger groups.

There are currently more than 90 types of ticket available, which is causing confusion, says the Central Rail Users Consultative Committee in a report today.

The CRUCC said: "Passengers do not know the right questions to ask to take advantage of fare offers and it is often difficult to obtain accurate information."

The CRUCC also called on train companies to cut average fares by 1 per cent every year over the life of their franchises.
