In the SPT area, holders of the National Concessionary Card can also travel by rail or Subway on reduced fares.
All concessionary rail journeys have to start and end at a station inside the scheme's boundaries (please see map here). A 60p concessionary fare is charged for rail journeys of up to 10 miles. A half-adult single or half-adult return fare is charged for journeys over 10 miles. Return fares and through ticketing are allowed.
Card holders can use the Subway or Ferry for 80p for a single journey and a £1.20 for a return journey.
People who are 60 years and over cannot take advantage of the scheme before 9am on weekdays. However, this does not apply if you are travelling to a hospital appointment which you can only get to by travelling before 9am. Written proof, such as your appointment card, of the appointment needs to be produced when the ticket is bought.
There is no peak time restriction for people with disabilities.
There is no restriction at weekends or on national public holidays.
