Layla Moran MP has today called on veterans to take advantage of the new Veterans Railcard, which offers those eligible 1/3 off rail travel. The new railcard, which will offer a discount to the 830,000 veterans who are not already entitled to reductions, will begin discounting rail fares from the 5th November.
Layla said: "Such a scheme was “incredibly important” as part of efforts to make sure those who served their country are cared for. I want to encourage all the veterans in my constituency to take up this railcard offer.
This is just one small thing that we can do to show our gratitude to those who have served this country and should help them access more travel and employment opportunities which is incredibly important. It makes a welcome change, but I hope the Government knows that there is much more to be done besides travel discounts.”
