Campaign against off-peak fare changes by East Midlands Trains

160 Signatures Goal: 250

As of September 6th 2009, East Midlands Trains is increasing the 9.40am off-peak arrival time into London St Pancras to 10.01am. This means that the 8.16am and 8.48am from Market Harborough (8.26 and 8.57 Kettering / 8.35 and 9.05 Wellingborough) will be re-classified as peak trains. Typically this could see a fare of £37.50 (from Market Harborough to London) increase to £92. For those commuting into london 2-3 days a week - an increasingly large number considering the take up of both flexi-time and more flexible working practises by employers - this is a huge blow. Commuters travelling on these trains will either have to travel on a later train which would get them into work up to 43 minutes later than currently (for those Kettering and Wellingborough travellers currently using the 8.26 and 8.57 trains) or be willing to pay up to 140% more for their train fare. We are asking East Midlands Trains to resind this punitive act that flies in the face of modern day working practises and will cause huge problems for many commuters to London.
