Changes to off peak rail tickets in South Yorkshire

Have your say

Train passengers will no longer be able to use off-peak tickets at peak times on weekday evenings on Northern Rail services.

The changes will take effect from September 8 and will apply from 4pm to 6.30pm as part of a new franchise agreement to reduce the firm’s Government subsidy.

Commercial director Richard Allan said: “The majority of customers who travel at peak times, those with season tickets and Travelmaster products, will be unaffected but we want to make sure those who are affected know what is happening.”
