Cheap rail fares to see Olympics

Have your say

SOUTH Yorkshire sports fans planning to attend events at the London Olympics are being urged to book rail tickets in the next few weeks.

Advance purchase tickets for August are available from the start of May.

Train operators and the Olympic Delivery Authority are urging spectators to make bookings as soon as possible to ensure they pay the cheapest fares and have the widest choice of trains to suit their particular trip.

David Mapp, commercial director at the Association of Train Operating Companies said: “It is a real concern that so many 2012 Games ticket holders are yet to book their rail travel to and from Olympic and Paralympic events.”
