Ticket price increase from January 2020
The increase will be based on the Retail Prices Index (RPI) inflation measure for July of 2.8%.
The figure is likely to lead to an increase of more than £100 in the annual cost of getting to work for many commuters.
Passenger groups urged a change in the way ticket prices are calculated, as RPI is no longer a national statistic.
