The Association of Train Operating Companies want 'rail peak pricing' which will result in passengers on popular services paying a premium, above the inflation increase in fares (http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,2-1662717,00.html)

They'll be sticking a black box up yer bum I guess. :lol

So you are going to have to pay a fortune to drive anywhere because the the Govt. wants you to use public transport, but public transport will cost just as much and cant cope anyway.
SO expensive Status Quo then, and they said it wasnt a stealth tax. Or is this transport companies cashing in?
Then again, airlines have always done it this way.
Wouldnt it be funny if food in restaurants and bars was astronomically priced at mealtimes, or the water board charged more for water in the evenings.
