Rail Partners responds to expansion of single leg pricing trial for rail tickets

11 May 2023

Following LNER's announcement that its trial of single leg ticket pricing will be expanded to cover its entire network. Andy Bagnall, Rail Partners' chief executive, said:

'It is great news for customers that LNER’s trial of single leg pricing is expanding as the industry has been calling for this important step in simplifying fares for many years.

We’d like to see people travelling across the whole network benefit from fares and ticketing reform, so want other operators to be rapidly afforded similar opportunities to trial this type of change.

Better value fares ultimately benefit the taxpayer too, through increased journeys and revenue, reducing government subsidy to the railway.'
