What is a Flexi Season ticket?

A Flexi Season ticket offers 8 days of unlimited travel in 28 days – you can travel any time between two named stations. It's a flexible solution that's perfect if you need to travel to work two or three times a week Monday to Friday at Peak times.

How does a Flexi Season ticket work?

A Flexi Season ticket comes as a bundle of 8 Day Passes you must use within 28 days.

Each Day Pass allows unlimited travel for 1 day between a given origin and destination station. The 8 days of travel don’t need to be specified in advance, giving you more flexibility to travel when you want and need.

For example, with a Flexi Season you may choose to travel 1 day for the first week, 4 days in the second, and 3 in the third, enjoying more flexibility than you would with a normal Season ticket.
