The Thameslink, Southern and Great Northern (TSGN) rail franchise includes an obligation to introduce carnet-based season tickets on smartcards by 30 September 2015. The Essex Thameside franchise includes a similar obligation to introduce flexible season tickets and carnets. We plan to trial flexible ticketing through a combination of research and analysis, as well as evaluation of data from these flexible ticketing schemes. Conclusions around price, flexibility, the impacts on operator revenue and other ticket prices will be central to any decisions on wider roll-out.</p> more like this
