Student Railcard Valleys and Cardiff Local Routes

  • Costs £10 per year
  • 26% off day tickets and 10% off season (weekly & monthly) tickets
  • Valid on Valleys & Cardiff Local Routes

Applicants must be over 16 years and in full-time education or under 26 years and in part-time education. For more information visit Transport for Wales.

If you don’t have to travel five times per week, it may be cheaper to buy discounted day tickets.

16-25 Railcard

Available to 16-25 year olds and students over the age of 26 in full-time education. For more information visit 16 to 25 Railcard.

The £12 minimum fare during peak times means this card would only offer you savings if you are commuting a significant distance, or if your lectures start early. It may still be useful if you travel longer distances regularly.

26 - 30 Railcard

Available to 26-30 year olds, the National Rail 26-30 Railcard will save you 1/3 off a wide range of tickets. For more information visit 26 to 30 Railcard.
