Part-time season tickets and flexible multi-buy tickets give people who commute part-time a better deal than they would otherwise have access to.

All new franchisees are required as part of their franchise procurement process to offer a product or products in addition to existing season tickets, that give customers who travel less than 5 days a week a better value-for-money option than buying multiple return journeys. Govia Thameslink Railway already offer carnet products on selected routes.
