The Railway Rip Off


Meanwhile over at the BBC

Costs per passenger km for different systems, in Greece. However, the BBC lets slip the figures for the UK.

Train: 0.6 euros (48p)
Taxi (for one): 1.2 euros
Taxi (for four): 0.3 euros
Plane: 0.14 euros
Bus: 0.08 euros
Car: 0.18 euros
UK train: 0.3 euros

We're being forced to pay for the UK train system, even if we don't use it.

Look at the cost of buses/coaches in comparison. 0.3 / 0.08 = 375%

The state's a rip off.
