How should the fares on buses, trains and ferries be set? If it were simply a matter of recovering costs, fares would be many times higher than they are now.

The justification for this rise is not clear.

What rise?

A draft report has been put out that proposes a change in how the relative external benefits of public transport are evaluated as part of the process for setting the maximum increase in fares.  In recent years fares haven't risen by anything close to that maximum anyway.

If you want to see a justification for the change in approach - then read that draft report.

If you want to see a justification for previous maximum increases - then read the relevant reports for those increases!
