Northern promote its Education Season Tickets for term time
PARENTS of Bradford children have been urged to save money on an Education Season Ticket on the railways.
Northern has teamed up with 124 secondary schools and university technical colleges across the length and breadth of its network – including North Yorkshire, West Yorkshire, South Yorkshire and East Riding of Yorkshire – to offer the special season ticket, which offers their students up to 75 per cent off the normal adult fare.
On some routes across Yorkshire, the savings are worth as much as £575 per year.
Education Season Tickets offer unlimited travel between two stations and are valid seven days a week. As such, they can be used at weekends and during the holidays – not just the 195 days per year that schools are open.
For a full list of participating schools and to purchase an Education Season Ticket for the new academic year, parents should go to northernrailway.co.uk/tickets/educational-season
Mark Powles, customer and commercial director at Northern, said: “Parents can save hundreds of pounds per year by investing in an Education Season Ticket at the start of the academic year.
“They’ll also be able to rest assured their child will always have the means to get to and from school – and they won’t have to scramble around for the train fare each morning.”
