West Midlands Railway and London Northwestern Railway passengers will be able to get a 20% discount on tickets when buying online and travelling to Birmingham or London.

This is all in a bid to save passengers money this half-term as the operator looks to roll out plans to improve service performance.

From Saturday 15 February until 23 February, passengers will pay less for off-peak tickets.

Tickets will be available to purchase for travel from today up to and including Tuesday 31 March 2020.

The discount comes in addition to a 3% reduction in the cost of season tickets and a 10% discount on off-peak travel in July and August.

Delays and cancellations have fallen significantly this year following a period of poor performance in the second half of 2019.

Passengers can also take advantage of exclusive rail only 2for1 discounts to attractions including The Bear Grylls Adventure and The National SEA LIFE Centre Birmingham and DreamWorks tour, Shrek’s Adventure and Kidzania in London.

What did the officials say?

Julian Edwards, managing director of WMR and LNR parent company West Midlands Trains, said:

“We are sorry for the service our customers received last year. We are determined to put things right and we have a plan to do so.

“In the meantime it’s only right we continue to compensate passengers that travel frequently with us. This February promotion is part of our commitment to the Mayor of the West Midlands that our customers should receive travel discounts as soon as possible.”
