Railways: Concessions

Question for Department for Transport

UIN 140566, tabled on 15 March 2022

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, whether his Department has carried out an equality impact assessment of bereaved partners losing access to the Two Together railcard following the death of their partner; and what assessment his Department has made of the potential merits of making a comparable discount available to such passengers.

The Rail Delivery Group is the product owner of the Two Together Railcard. While railcard terms and conditions state that they are non-refundable, a partial refund can be considered on the death of a railcard holder. Cases are considered individually and I would urge anyone who finds themselves in this situation to contact the Rail Delivery Group directly.
