Labour vows to cut commuter rail fares by a third


Jeremy Corbyn will divert money earmarked for building roads to cutting commuter rail fares if Labour wins the general election, the party says.

The Labour leader would cut regulated rail fares by 33 per cent from next month, which Labour estimates will save the average commuter in England more than 1,000 a year.......

In addition to the fare cut, children aged 16 and under would receive free rail travel and part-time workers would be guaranteed to not pay more than people who have weekly season tickets.
