Train ticket sales rise to £9.4bn

London has risen the most

 With all the hype around the rising cost of train tickets, it’s perhaps a surprise to hear sales are on the rise too.

Ticket sales rose 3.8% last year, according to the Rail Delivery Group, reaching 1.7 billion journeys between 4 January 2015 and 9 January 2016.

That’s a rise of 62 million journeys in just a year.

There was a rise in cheaper advance and off-peak tickets, however, the revenue brought in from sales rose by 6% to £9.4bn.

London and the South East rose the most – by 4.3%.
