Season Tickets

Now available on Smart cards

Reasons to buy a Season Ticket

If you travel regularly along the same route, buying a Season Ticket is the best way to save time and money on your train tickets.

Season Tickets are now available on a Smart card giving you all the benefits of smarter train travel.

• EASIER – just buy online from the comfort of your own home or from your phone on the go

• QUICKER – buy online, at a ticket machine or at the ticket office. And there’s no need to feed your ticket through the gates just tap onto the reader and go.

• SMARTER – your card is registered, so if it is lost or stolen it can easily be replaced.

Season Tickets are available for 7 days, 1 calendar month and any period between 1-12 months, which offers significant savings over buying an Anytime Day Return each day. You'll be able to travel on any day within the validity of the ticket and avoid having to queue repeatedly for your train ticket.

Sound good? That's just the start...

Save money

On a 12-month Season Ticket you get 52 weeks’ travel but you’ll only pay for 40 weeks.

Even if you travel the same route just 4 days a week, a Season Ticket will save you money. Use the Season Ticket Calculator and see just how much you could save.

Pay monthly

If you would prefer to split the cost into easy monthly payments, take a look at CommuterClub.

No queues

With a Season Ticket you can head straight to your train and don’t have to queue at the ticket machine every morning. More time to treat yourself and join the coffee queue instead!
