An annual season ticket between Ascot and London Paddington now costs £3,628, with an increase of 3.2 per cent, it would be £3,744, an increase of £116 a year.
New analysis by Labour shows that some commuters will pay £2,850 more than in 2010 to travel to work and, in Theresa May's own constituency of Maidenhead, the cost of an annual season ticket to London Paddington has risen by £831 since the Tories took power.

Steve Hedley described the Transport Secretary as "failing Grayling" over his call for the rail industry to change the way it calculates fare hikes and staff wages.
About 40 per cent of fares will rise by the regulated amount in January, including season tickets on most commuter routes, some off-peak returns and anytime tickets around major cities.
