Transport Focus welcomes new split ticketing tool
Rail ticket retailer trainline.com has launched a new split-ticketing tool on its app.
Anthony Smith, chief executive of the independent watchdog Transport Focus, said:
“We know that passengers can find it hard to know they have got a good deal, and only those ‘in the know’ have been able to take advantage of split ticketing. We are pleased to see Trainline launching this tool that will enable passengers to take advantage of cheaper journeys where they are available.
“Of course, people shouldn’t need tips and tricks to know they are getting the best deal and so we want to see major fares and ticketing reforms coming out of the forthcoming Williams review.”
