'Historic' train fare rise from Tuesday
By:
thinkSPAIN , Monday, April 30, 2012

TRAIN fares everywhere in Spain except Barcelona are set to go up on Tuesday by an average of nearly 11 per cent, according to the national rail board, RENFE.

Short-haul and local fares will be mostly affected, although the costs of tickets for long-distance journeys are expected to remain untouched.

Examples of these will include the price of a single or return ticket along the Gandia-Valencia line, which will go up by 11.7 per cent, or 9.4 per cent for multi-trip or season tickets.

Train tickets between Madrid and destinations in Andalucía, Cantabria, the Comunidad Valenciana, Castilla-La Mancha, Castilla y León, Extremadura and the Basque Country will rise by 12.85 per cent, or multi-trip tickets by 5.74 per cent.

Long-distance high-speed AVE tickets will not increase in price, although the RENFE has not ruled this out for the future.

This increase, which is six times the rate of inflation – currently at two per cent – is said to be the highest in Spain's history.

Local train tickets – for the so-called Cercanías lines, such as those between Valencia and Xàtiva or Gandia – increased by between three and six per cent in the four-year period between 2007 and 2011.
