Train travel and the senior railcard
Older people (aged 60+) and disabled people in Leeds will be able to travel off-peak by train anywhere in West Yorkshire for 35p. with an English National Concessionary Pass from April 2008.
Older people (aged 60+) can buy a Senior Railcard to get 1/3 off most train fares throughout Great Britain.
If you have mobility problems you can get help for your journey at staffed stations. You have to book this, usually at least 24 hours in advance, with the relevant train company. Phone National rail Enquiries (0845 60 50 600).
Older people (aged 60+) can buy a Senior Railcard. This costs £20.00 a year and will save you 1/3 on most rail fares throughout Great Britain, and some sea journeys, for a year. You can get a leaflet with application form from any staffed railway station. Or you can use a debit or credit card to buy your Railcard on the Senior Railcard website or on the phone (08457 484 950).
If you live in West Yorkshire you can use your English National Concessionary Pass on off-peak trains in West Yorkshire for just 35p., without buying a Senior Railcard. You can also get discounts to travel by coach.
