Millennial railcards ‘still on track’, says Treasury – BBC News
The Treasury says it remains “committed to making rail travel more accessible” for young people with the introduction of a railcard for 26-30 year-olds.
But no date has been set for the full release of the so-called millennial railcard, which began a limited trial in March of 10,000 cards.
It comes amid reports that the scheme could be shelved amid disagreement over who will fund them.
The card was announced in the Budget in November by Chancellor Philip Hammond.
One media report said there was wrangling over who would pick up the bill for the cards, which give one-third off most ticket prices in England, Wales and Scotland. Millennial railcards ‘still on track’, says Treasury – BBC News
