The next meeting of the Transport Economists’ Group will be held at 17:30 for 18:00 on Wednesday 24 April 2019 at Arup at 13 Fitzroy Street, London W1T 4BQ
John Segal and Jenny Taylor of SYSTRA will speak on “Evaluation of the 26-30 Railcard pilot”
The 26-30 Railcard (“The Millennial Railcard”) went on sale on 2 January 2019 and was met by high initial demand.
The new railcard offers similar benefits to the existing Young Person's 16-to-25 Railcard. It costs £30 and offers a saving of one third on rail fares throughout Great Britain for a whole year, including all Standard and First Class Advance fares. To be eligible, passengers must be aged 26-30 and have a smart mobile device.
The speakers will describe their work on the evaluation of the pilot of the 26-30 Railcard for the Rail Delivery Group (RDG), including its projected impact on travel behaviour.
