If there’s a journey you take regularly, like your commute or a school run, buying a Season Ticket is a great way to make savings, be more flexible, and spend less time queuing for tickets. You can buy a Season Ticket for either seven days or any period between one month and a year.

What are Season Tickets?

If you are planning to make a regular journey for a week, month, or year, a Season Ticket enables you to make an unlimited number of trips in both directions between two selected stations. This means that you have more flexibility in your schedule and can travel when best suits you.

There are a few different options when it comes to Season Tickets, including weekly, monthly, or annual tickets. Plus, if you're travelling semi-regularly but not often enough to buy a Season Ticket, you can buy a Flexi Season Ticket, which offers discounted travel on regular journeys.

Benefits of Season Tickets

Season Tickets can make your regular journeys easier and more affordable by saving you time and money on your commute. You can enjoy unlimited travel on your regular route, with discounted prices on Season Tickets compared to Day tickets.

In general, tickets with a longer duration come with greater savings. Plus, travelling with a Season Ticket means that you don't need to queue to buy tickets as often, saving you extra time. 

In some areas, you can use multi-modal tickets, meaning that you can buy Season Tickets suitable for train, bus, and tram travel.
