Commuter Rewards

To help commuters make the most of their journeys back to work, now the restrictions have lifted, the rail industry has launched a national commuter rewards website to help rail users make the most of their ‘me-time’ on the train and long awaited catch up with friends or colleagues after work.

The rail industry has teamed up with the likes of FutureLearn, The Mindfulness App, audiobooks and more to offer customers free and discounted perks to help them make the most of their ‘me-time’ when they commute. Other perks include free and discounted food and hot drinks on-the-go food brands like Pure and Greggs.

To take advantage of the free and discounted rewards rail you just need to sign up and pick the rewards you want.
