With my passion for Transport, I welcome today's news of a railcard for 16 and 17 year olds. With the railcard set to launch in September, just in time for the start of the academic year, it enables all 16 and 17 year olds to receive 50% off rail travel.
The release of the railcard follows the hugely successful launch of the 26-30 railcard earlier this year, when 11,000 cards were sold on the first day alone. Now all young adults, from the ages of 16 to 30, will benefit from cut price fares, helping them with the cost of living.
It is my hope that all 16 and 17 year olds in Milton Keynes will take advantage of this fantastic new railcard, guaranteeing them half price fares.
