Your Results

If you won't be commuting to the office every day after the pandemic, this calculator can help you estimate whether it's worth buying a season ticket or whether you're better off buying a separate ticket each day you travel.

We can also help you compare the cost of a season ticket against 'flexi season tickets' - the carnet-style tickets which let you make eight journeys between two stations within a 28-day period.

Note: we've made some assumptions around weekends and holidays to make this calculator work - so be wary if these don't apply to you.
