To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, pursuant to the Answer of 28 June 2021 to Question 21298, Railways: Season Tickets, what comparative assessment he has made of the cost-per-day savings offered to two and three days a week commuters travelling from Hove to London and back in a day using (a) a flexible season ticket and (b) annual season ticket.
The flexible season ticket is a national product, priced to provide better value and convenience for commuters travelling two to three days a week.
For most 2 and 3 day a week commuters, the flexible season ticket will offer savings against buying daily tickets or traditional seasons, provided that they are following this commuting pattern.
For those with different commuting patterns, existing tickets such as traditional seasons or dailies may be the best choice.
Commuters should always consider which product best suits their journey and travel pattern. This is easier than ever with the updated season ticket calculator.
