Bit Miffed at Excessive Train Fare – add £1.90

leave a comment »

Hmm – got stung on the old train fare this morning. Well, actually, tram fare to be exact. After failing to stop at my usual station because of ‘overcrowding’ I was unfortunately forced on to a further stop which required me to take a tram to work.

It added another £1.90  to my daily spend of £10.50 – GUTTED

I know it doesn’t sound much but times that by 365 days and that’s an extra £693.50  per year.
