Commuters will be asked to sign up for cheaper train fares when a group of campaigners visit Sittingbourne train station today (Monday).
The protestors will be wearing giant train tickets and handing out campaign postcards to passengers from 11.30am to 12.30pm as part of a campaign for better transport.
The Conservative's prospective parliamentary candidate Gordon Henderson will join the group after he pledged his support to the campaign for a review of rail fares regulation in a bid to bring down fares.
Mr Henderson is one of 11 politicians backing the move.
Protestors will take their campaign to Rochester station from 4pm to 5pm today and Gravesend station from 5.30pm to 6.30pm.
Cat Hobbs, the group's public transport campaigner, said: "People in Kent have been hit by higher fare rises than anywhere else.
"The Government allows Southeastern's regulated fares to go up three per cent above inflation every year.
"We're glad that many election candidates here are standing up for passengers and saying that the Government must review fares."
