Penalty Fare Scheme

Buy before you board

Penalty Fare Scheme 

TransPennine Express are introducing a Penalty Fare scheme which covers our whole network (except Scotland). The scheme will launch on 2 February 2020.

Where ticketing facilities are available, our customers are expected to buy their ticket before boarding the train. If you do not buy your ticket before you travel, you could be issued with a Penalty Fare.

A Penalty fare is twice the full single fare for your journey or £20, whichever is greater.

Download the TPExpress app to buy e-tickets and the cheapest available fares.
