Changes to Off-Peak Rail Travel

Home » Newsroom » Changes to Off-Peak Rail Travel

Northern Rail is introducing changes to the times that customers can use off-peak tickets as part of its franchise agreement with the Department for Transport. For full details click here.

The changes will take effect from Monday 8 September and will mean that off-peak tickets can no longer be used at peak times during weekday evenings on local rail services in Greater Manchester, West Yorkshire, South Yorkshire, along the Newcastle — Hexham line and some associated routes.

Customers who currently use off-peak tickets during the evening peak will either have to travel earlier or later, or buy an anytime ticket.

For travellers from Chelford to and from Manchester Piccadilly it appears that there are no changes with off-peak singles, returns or Wayfarers. What we do lose however are the cheap evening returns (all of which are withdrawn).
