Welsh Conservative reaction to Transport for Wales fare increases

Commenting on the planned fares rise, Russell George MS – the Shadow Minister for Economy, Transport and Mid Wales – said:

“The irony, verging on hypocrisy, shown by Labour over this 2.6-percent rise in fares for Transport for Wales passengers is shocking – especially with just a fortnight before the new fare structure is imposed.

“Labour panned the same percentage rise set out by the Department for Transport late last year, but instead of coming clean and making an announcement, the Welsh Government disclosed the rises not to Members of the Senedd and to the people of Wales, but to the media following their inquiries.

“Fares rises are, generally, inevitable, but so too it seems is Labour’s preference for hiding uncomfortable news and disclosing it to the press first.”
