We have committed to capping regulated rail fares at the Retail Price Inflation (RPI) for five years from 2016 and we have also stopped operators increasing individual regulated fares by up to 2% more than RPI. Train operators will use the July 2015 RPI figure, published in August, to set regulated rail fares for 2016. Data on these fares will be published in December 2015.
