The 75 per cent season ticket reimbursement is available to employees who commute to work on non-Transport for London (TfL) services. The annual cost increase reflects the increase in National Rail fares which are set by the government. This is an important part of TfL’s overall reward offer. Information on the cost of this scheme and the number of employees using it for the previous five financial years is provided in the table below.
