Flexi-Seasons – helping UK Rail adapt to the new commuter

SilverRail is delighted to have played a role in supporting the launch of Flexi-Seasons in the UK, aimed at commuters who travel two or three days a week.

The pandemic has significantly increased the number of people who work from home, and has therefore changed the frequency with which people have to travel to work.

As part of the government’s planned overhaul of UK rail, Flexi-Seasons have been introduced across the network, offering greater freedom, choice and value for money to passengers. . It has been estimated that commuters could save between £60 and £350 a year on selected journeys with these new tickets.

SilverRail has worked closely with both the Rail Delivery Group (RDG) to operationalise the new fares in National Rail Enquiries and on Chiltern Railways.  Passengers can now purchase Flexi-Seasons across multiple digital platforms and we have developed the capability to have the products delivered in various smart ticket formats, including  ITSO Smart Card and barcodes, via the SilverCore Ticket Issuing System.

“It has been fantastic to work with our partners to help deliver a key piece of functionality as part of the rail recovery program. There’s a lot more we can do together and we’re excited about the future.”

Stuart McLay, Commercial Account Manager.

We look forward to collaborating further with our partners to continue innovating on behalf of the industry and millions of UK rail passengers.


Improving the world’s access to clean water step-by-step!

Throughout May, we had a fantastic month living our values. We competed in our global office head-to-head step challenge where Sweden took the crowning glory this year at an incredible 377,035 average per person. Globally we achieved a total of 13,636,920 steps!

We also had a focus on hydrating and Doing Good, – for every rep, step or drop, we donated to the wonderful charity, The Water Project, raising an amazing $1,365 which will provide 40 people with clean and safe drinking water as well as a new community well in Africa.

It’s so easy to forget how blessed we are to have clean drinking water always at hand, but others aren’t so fortunate and have to sacrifice an education and normal way of living in search of a clean and reliable water source. The pandemic has really affected the charity sector as well the people they support, so we’re delighted to have made this contribution, whilst pulling together as a team. We are Stronger Together!

It was also a great way for us all to take time out to focus on feeling good, refreshing and resetting for May’s mental health awareness month theme, Nature! Here are some pictures of the beautiful walks SilverRailer’s went on!
