08/04/14 - Rosie Cooper MP welcomes new ‘Two Together’ railcard


Rosie Cooper MP has welcomed the launch of the new ‘Two Together’ railcard, aimed at increasing passenger use of the railways.


The scheme works by providing a 1/3 discount to two adults travelling at any time, aside from peak times Monday to Friday, and will only cost £30.00 per year for two named people travelling together. The railcard can be used for standard and first class tickets. Railcard holders can save on average £148.00 per year.


MP Rosie said:

“The announcement of this railcard is great news for families where the kids have a young person’s railcard or couple who enjoy trips and weekends away. Being able to save a third on ticket prices will offer a noticeable saving.


“This railcard would offer even better value for money for West Lancashire residents if we had a new service into Skelmersdale or upgraded services on the Ormskirk to Preston and Southport to Manchester services.”
