New railcard welcomed

14 August 2019

Responding to the launch of a new railcard for 16-17 year olds, Darren Shirley, Chief Executive of Campaign Better Transport, said: 

"We welcome the launch of this new railcard as a positive move to help young people in education and training enjoy discounted rail travel. We now await the recommendations of the Rail Review which should include fundamental reform of rail fares to further address affordability."
