The Built Environment Committee has today written to the Rail Minister calling for the Government to set out a strategy for rail fare reform to ensure that Great British Railways (GBR) is clear about its objectives and can successfully implement the new system.

Baroness Neville-Rolfe, Chair of the House of Lords Committee, said the launch of Great British Railways in 2023 provides a unique opportunity to clarify fares and reduce confusion.
