Notes:
 
The rail fares price index provides a measure of the change in the prices charged by train operating companies (TOCs) to rail passengers. The index shows the average change in prices since January 2004 and is calculated from transaction data held in LENNON, the rail industry’s ticketing and revenue database.

The average change in fares is weighted by earnings and is presented alongside the January 2018 all items retail prices index to illustrate how the average change in rail fares compares with the average change in the cost of goods and services.
 
More details on methodology can be found in the quality report relating to this dataset:
 
This dataset is used in the Rail Fares Index(January 2018) statistical release published under the Rail Finance theme. To view or download the statistical release:
