Exeter rail commuters are counting the cost of increased travel prices today after regulated fares across the country increased by an average of 4.2%.

Commuters who travel from Barnstable to Exeter will now have to pay up to £208 extra a year after yesterday’s price increase.

For people travelling to Exeter for work on a cheap return ticket five days a week will pay an extra £2 a week. This will add up to an extra £104 a year.

Those taking the same trip on a single ticket will pay an extra 80p. Over 52 weeks this will add up to an extra £208.

Those travelling between Plymouth and Exeter St David’s have also been hit by the increase now paying £3,000 for an annual season ticket about £125 more expensive than last year.
