Rail fares could be simplified under ticketing shake-up
Combining peak and off-peak fares and reducing e-ticket prices are options outlined in new consultation
Railway passengers could choose to pay more to travel on “reliable and comfortable trains” under a radical shake-up of rail ticketing being planned by the industry.
Combining peak and off-peak fares into a new “flat fare” structure so passengers are charged the same during busier and quieter periods, and reducing prices for e-tickets but charging more for paper tickets, are options outlined in a consultation being launched on Monday.
