First Capital Connect to freeze car park prices at railway stations
TRAIN company First Capital Connect (FCC) has announced that car parking charges at its railway stations will NOT increase in January.
The firm, which manages each of the nine railway stations in Times Territory, committed to the price freeze despite the fact that the Government is raising the rate of VAT from 15 to 17.5 per cent.
An FCC spokesman added: “Investment in help points, CCTV, Park Mark Awards and Premier Parking will continue and we will work to expand car parks where possible.”
The news followed an earlier announcement from company bosses, in which they pledged to hold or reduce fares on all services.
In a statement, FCC commercial director Hugh Clancy said: “We recognise the current economic climate and the impact this has on our customers and the freezing of fares reflect this.

The nine stations run by FCC in Times Territory are: Knebworth, Welwyn North, Welwyn Garden City, Hatfield, Welham Green, Brookmans Park, Potters Bar, Cuffley and Watton-at-Stone.
