I am writing to schools across Milton Keynes North, asking teachers to encourage their students to take advantage of a new railcard for 16 and 17 year olds.
One of my key focuses has been to improve the transport experience in MK and this railcard, launching in September, will save youngsters 50 per cent off all rail travel.
The release of the railcard, in time for new school year, follows the hugely successful launch of the 26-30 railcard earlier this year, when 11,000 cards were sold on the first day alone. Now all young adults, from the ages of 16 to 30, will benefit from cut price fares, helping them with the cost of living.
I hope that all 16 and 17 year olds in Milton Keynes take advantage of this fantastic new railcard, which will guarantee them half price fares.
