National Express teams up with Cambridgeshire Travel for Work Partnership to launch train season-tic
Train operator National Express East Anglia has teamed up with the Cambridgeshire Travel for Work Partnership (TfW) on a new incentive scheme launched at Cambridge rail station on Wednesday 10 June, to offer a saving on the cost of monthly, quarterly and annual train season tickets for workers employed by companies in the county who are full members of the Travel for Work network.
Travel for Work provides travel solutions for Cambridgeshire employers through supporting the development of effective workplace travel initiatives that promote train and bus use, car sharing, cycling and walking for travelling to and from work.
National Express East Anglia (NXEA) is offering a 10% discount on the cost of a season ticket of a month or longer duration for any employees of companies signed-up to the TfW scheme. With approximately 56,000 employees working in over 70 companies on the TfW network, NXEA hopes this added incentive to save money on a season-ticket which already offers savings on the cost of a daily ticket, will encourage more people in Cambridgeshire to take the train.
National Express East Anglia’s Business Development Manager Tanya Havers and Gary Armstrong, Travel Plan Adviser at Cambridgeshire Travel for Work were joined by employees of Mott McDonald, based in Station Road, Cambridge who have already signed-up to the scheme.
Tanya Havers, Business Development Manager for National Express East Anglia said, “We’re delighted to be working in partnership with Travel for Work in Cambridgeshire by offering a discount on the cost of season-tickets, encouraging more people across the county to think about taking the train to work.”
Gary Armstrong, Travel Plan Adviser at Cambridgeshire Travel for Work commented, “This is a very exciting incentive which will be added to the portfolio of services we currently provide to the TfW membership and one which will be most welcome especially to those organisations based near the station.”
