CHILTERN Railways has announced it will freeze the prices for season tickets holders in Princes Risborough after an outcry in the town over the new timetable.

The new train times were introduced at the start of December with many commuters from the town complaining about the loss of some of the most popular services.

They said the new timetable meant longer gaps and less time spent at home.
At the same time the train company are raising their train fares in the New Year.
But the company has been putting up posters in Princes Risborough saying the price will not go up for commuters from the town.

The poster by managing director, Rob Brighouse, reads: "We have received a lot of feedback from passengers since the launch of our new timetable and much of this is from Princes Risborough commuters. 

"It is clear from my speaking to you that not everyone at this station considers the new timetable to be an improvement. 

"The complexity and timescales of timetable planning means it is not possible to change.

"However, in recognition of the strength of feeling, I have decided that we will not increase the price of season tickets to London in 2013."
