TRAIN and taxi users will have to dig deeper into their pockets to travel.
Taxi fares in Kirklees will rise by around 9% in the new year, it has been confirmed.
And both Arriva Trains Northern and First North Western are among train companies putting up their fares.
Rises by both operators will be above inflation.
Season ticket holders will pay 4.1% more.
Supersaver fares, cheap day tickets and off-peak travel cards will go up by 5.1% on Arriva trains and 3.1% on first North Western services.
Rail travellers condemned the rises.
Transport Users' Committee chairman Suzanne May said: "Passengers will be furious at the scale of these fare rises, particularly at a time when service levels remain so poor."
The go-ahead for taxi fares to increase came at a Kirklees Council meeting.
It is the first jump since 2001 and Kirklees Hackney Carriage Association said it was needed because of the rising costs of fuel and insurance.
Doug Holliday, licensing officer at Kirklees Council, said: "We are still in the lower division of taxi fares throughout the country. The fares are not excessive."
