Four million millennials can get new railcard, says rail industry



The new 26-30 railcard will go on sale before the end of the year - and this time it will be available to all four million eligible passengers, the rail industry has announced.

 
During a trial in the spring, only 20,000 people were allowed to buy one.


The ticket website crashed because of overwhelming demand from thousands of young people.


The launch of the "millennial" railcard was originally announced by the chancellor in the autumn 2017 Budget.


For the first time, the 26-30 railcard will be "digital only", meaning that passengers will need a smartphone to download it.
