Northern trials smart flexi tickets

24 July 2020

Flexible multi-journey ticketing is being trialled between Leeds and Harrogate stations in a move that Transport for the North says will be ideal for passengers who no longer commute five days a week because of Covid-19. The smartcards give passengers ten unlimited travel days for the price of nine and are valid for six months. Passengers can use both Northern and LNER services. State-controlled train operator Northern plans to roll-out the tickets to more routes in the coming months. The tickets take advantage of Transport for the North’s investment in smart ticketing technology for rail. ‘Tap-in-tap-out’ systems have been installed on platforms at 90 stations and the majority of rail season ticket-holders have moved from paper to smart cards. TfN is now seeking DfT approval for the next stage to extend tap-in-tap-out to more than 300 additional stations. TfN ultimately wants to deliver London-style pay-as-you-go travel using contactless bank cards or smartphones.
