The fare will rise as from January 11.

Do you say 'January eleventh' or 'January eleven'?

Thank you

Either, or "eleventh of January".
Is it '...as from the eleventh of January' or just '...as from eleventh of Janurary'?

Thanks

Either - depends on how formal you want to be.
Based on your original line, I would read it "January eleventh."

However, "as of from" should be "as of."

I've always used 'as from'

- as from next week
- as from + date

In formal notices the phrase - with effect from - can be used.

With effect from 1st July 2008, Mr X will take over the position of Sales Manager.
Hi Opti

Are you British?
Like GG, I would use "as of" rather than "as from". (AmE)
