Rail fares to help part-time commuters

Video. The frustration of paying for a weekly rail ticket when you only want to travel for three or four days could be about to end. Help is on the way for season ticket holders too.

The fare cutting plans were unveiled by the rail minister and Sussex MP Norman Baker today. Our Transport Correspondent, Mike Pearse reports.

Part-time season tickets for rail commuters

Rail passengers in the South will be able to buy part time season pickets as part of plans announced by the transport minister Norman Baker.

It will mean passengers who work three or four days a week will no longer have to pay for full monthly or annual season tickets.

The scheme will be piloted in London next year.

The transport minister Norman Baker talked to us about the new tickets.
