Stirling's MP Stephen Kerr this morning welcomed the introduction of the new 26-30 railcard, created to offer 26-30 year olds cheaper rail travel throughout Great Britain on the National Rail network.
This card will mean 4.5 million people can access reduced price rates on all routes from Wick to Truro. The card will cut the given price by 1/3, a considerable saving.
This introduction comes on top of the announcement that a 16-17 railcard will be released in September 2019, extending cheaper child fares to 16 and 17 year olds. This will be a 50% discount for 1.2 million young people.
Stephen Kerr MP said:
"These announcements will make a significant difference to millions of young commuters and rail users across the country, including many in Stirling. 3.3 million trips are made to and from Stirling stations every year.
I encourage all regular rail users 26-30 to sign up for the new card. You can apply here: https://www.26-30railcard.co.uk/
