Question for Department for Transport

Flexible season tickets are available on both of the specified routes.

For most 2 and 3 day a week commuters, the flexible season ticket will offer savings against buying daily tickets or traditional seasons, provided that they are following this commuting pattern. For those with different commuting patterns, existing tickets such as traditional seasons or dailies may be the best choice.

In all cases a flexible season ticket will offer a minimum 20% discount on an equivalent monthly season ticket.

Passengers should consider which product best suits their travel patterns. This is easier than ever with the updated season ticket calculator
