There are many ticket options for train use.
Off peak tickets are traditionally cheaper than peak travel. If you have flexibility on when you can travel, choosing to travel after 9:00 am can have significant savings over peak time daily tickets.
If that doesn’t work for you, seasons tickets offer substantial savings over daily prices. Some of these include multimodal options such as the SPT Zone card that includes Bus, Train and Subway travel.
The use of smart cards across different transport modes is gradually being introduced. Not fully implemented, this will eventually be introduced across all public transport meaning:
- No need to carry change
- Tickets can be bought in advance and online using PayPal or Debit/Credit card.
- Smartcards can be used on different modes of transport throughout the day/period of travel – One ticket for all!
- Smartcards decrease boarding time which in turn reduces time to get where you are going.
