From 2 January 2020, rail ticket prices change across the country.

This year c2c’s fares are changing by 2.55% on average. This is lower than July’s rate of inflation, which the Government uses to set regulated fares including all commuter fares.

The extra money raised from fares is reinvested into running the railways. This funds improvements, such as c2c’s new trains which are currently being built and will be in operation from 2021. It also helps to maintain c2c’s status as London’s most punctual commuter service.

c2c now pays over a million pounds more every week back to the Government compared with five years ago. This helps fund Network Rail and other rail improvements. This investment is vital to support economic growth, both locally and across the country.
