Princes Risborough commuters will not pay any extra for a 2013 season ticket to London after complaining about a new timetable.

Chiltern Railways have raised their fees by an average 3.5% which remains lower than the national industry average of 3.9%,

However, Risborough prices will remain frozen for the year after campaigners said a new timetable introduced in December led to slower services.

On a poster at the station managing director Rob Brighouse explains the decision.

It reads: “In recognition of the strength of feeling, I have decided that we will not increase the price of season tickets to London in 2013.”
