Dear SWR and all,
I know this topic has been raised many times and there are different threads but the answer in most seem to be either to be launched late 2018 (didn't happen) or a 10-ticket carnet with 5% discount.
Is the best southwestern are going to offer to commuters travelling 3 times a week (for example a mother working part-time), a carnet with 5% discount? With all due respect, this is useless, as you are better off still buying a weekly or monthly ticket as the saving is negligible.
If it were your business would you willingly throw easy profit away? Increasing numbers of home workers are obviously a threat to the monopoly, so it must be protected at all costs whilst still achieving the franchise commitments at the legal minimum. Don’t expect anything to change here.
