In 2018, 8725 people used a Disabled Person’s Railcard in Inverclyde, compared to 4353 in 2015.
Everyone in Inverclyde should have the opportunity to travel by train and I welcome the increase in uptake of people using the Disabled Persons Railcard.
I’m pleased to work with the rail companies to raise awareness of the discounts offered by the Disabled Persons Railcard and hope more people will benefit from big savings that can be made.
The Disabled Persons Railcard offers 1/3 off adult rail fares for travel on the National Rail network in Great Britain for people with a disability that makes travelling by train difficult. If travelling with another adult, they will also get 1/3 off their rail fare. There are no time restrictions on the Disabled Persons Railcard, so you can use it to get a discount on tickets at any time of the day.
