New 16-17 Railcard to launch next week

View original New 16-17 Railcard to launch next week

The Department for Transport announced a new railcard to be launched next week for 1.2 million 16 and 17-year olds. The railcard ensures 50% off rail fares, saving young rail users on average of £186 per year. It will be available to purchase from Tuesday 20 August for £30. Currently, there is a 16-25 railcard which saves rail users 1/3 off their fares. Transport Minister Chris Heaton-Harris said the new 16-17 railcard means “a generation of rail passengers can now benefit from cheaper fares” as well “helping them get to school, college and work.”

The Transport Knowledge Hub is a fantastic resource and I’m really excited about the opportunity to explore how we can maximise its use among transport stakeholders. In the South East Midlands, investing in local transport infrastructure has unlocked significant economic growth. The Hub offers a formal framework for sharing expertise with decision makers around the UK, as well as learning from the experience of others. This will enable more investment to be directed towards  local and sustainable forms of transport.
