Brighton Main Line: Fares

Question for Department for Transport

UIN 117765, tabled on 3 February 2022

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, pursuant to the Answer of 28 June 2021 to Question 19564, if he will make it his policy to make available a flexible season ticket that is significantly better value than single tickets with a network card for commuters travelling from Brighton to London and back in a day; and if he will make a statement.

The flexible season ticket is a national product, priced to provide better value and convenience for commuters travelling two to three days a week, mainly at peak times. The Network Railcard is not valid in the peak, Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays), therefore it is not available for peak-time commuting. Passengers are encouraged to consider which product best suits their journey and travel patterns.
