Holding answer received on 20 June 2018

We continue to look into ways to improve the offer for passengers who work part time. The Secretary of State now includes a requirement for bidders to develop flexible ticketing offers for those who work or commute part-time in all franchise competitions. In developing such offers train operators should make use of both official statistics and their own commercial data.
