New rail cards are just the ticket

Stirling Observer - - FRONT PAGE -

MP for Stir­ling Stephen Kerr has wel­comed the in­tro­duc­tion of a new 26-30 rail­card.

The new card will of­fer those in that age group cheaper rail travel across the coun­try on the Na­tional Rail net­work.

Trav­ellers who take ad­van­tage of the card will see their rail fares cut by a third on all jour­neys across the United King­dom.

There will also be a new 16-17 rail­card as of Septem­ber, which will al­low teens to save up to 50 per cent on their jour­neys.

Mr Kerr said:“These an­nounce­ments will make a sig­nif­i­cant dif­fer­ence to mil­lions of young com­muters and rail users across the coun­try, in­clud­ing many in Stir­ling.

“No fewer than 3.3 mil­lion trips are made to and from Stir­ling sta­tions ev­ery year.

“I en­cour­age all reg­u­lar rail users in this age range to take full ad­van­tage and sign up for the new card.”
