Mario Creatura encourages young people in Croydon Central to apply for new railcard
 

Mario Creatura has written to schools across Croydon Central, asking teachers to encourage their students to take advantage of a new railcard for 16 and 17 year olds, that is soon to be launched by the Conservative Government.

Many young people rely on trains to get to school, college and work and Conservatives are determined to ensure that rail fares are affordable for young people and their parents across the country. The new railcard will guarantee 50 per cent off all rail travel until the cardholder reaches their 18th birthday. The new railcard is expected to benefit up to 1.2 million young people.

The release of the railcard, in time for new school year, follows the hugely successful launch of the 26-30 railcard earlier this year, when 11,000 cards were sold on the first day alone. Now all young adults, from the ages of 16 to 30, will benefit from cut price fares, helping them with the cost of living.

Commenting, Mario Creatura said:

“I hope that all 16 and 17 year olds in Croydon Central take advantage of this fantastic new railcard, which will guarantee them half price fares.

“That’s why I have written to all of the local schools and colleges, encouraging they make their students aware of this brilliant opportunity.

“Young people across the country rely on trains to get to school, college and work, and the Conservatives are determined to ensure that fares are affordable for them.”
