The UK’s leading lift-sharing firm has branded rises in transport costs “unsustainable” in the wake of the latest annual rail fare increase.

Liftshare believes public transport is now in danger of becoming a luxury many will struggle to afford.

National Rail insist the 2.2 per cent hike is the lowest in five years. From today the cost of travelling from London to Birmingham by train is £85.68, while the same journey costs just £11.70 with Liftshare – a saving of 65 per cent.
