The Telegraph reported that the Campaign for Better Transport has called for urgent introduction of part-time rail season tickets to reduce the cost of travel and encourage workers to minimise trips on busy services. This will also accommodate changes in the way people work and the patterns in which they visit workplaces, which are anticipated to continue even after lockdown rules are lifted. As new rail franchises have been agreed, the Government has mandated that firms introduce flexible tickets for regular travellers. However, many operators have chosen to offer “carnet” tickets, which contain between five and 10 single journey tickets, to customers. Carnet tickets typically offer a 5% reduction on the standard fare, which is much lower than the discounts offered to season ticket customers.
