16 and 17 and 26 to 30 railcards

Commenting on the new 16 and 17 and the launch of the 26 to 30 railcard, Anthony Smith, chief executive of Transport Focus, said:

“This is welcome news for passengers and will help take some of the sting out of the new year fares rise. With less than half of passengers satisfied with the value for money of their journey and even fewer young people satisfied, this will help make travelling by rail that little bit more affordable for young people.

“As regulated fares go up by 3.2% it’s absolutely critical that the rail industry delivers a more reliable day-to-day service.”
