“I use to drive everyday to work when I first started but now I use the train with the discount card.” Surrey County Council staff member
“It makes the train a much more feasible option – at the moment our public transport is so expensive it is cheaper for the individual to drive but this then causes huge problems with traffic / parking / pollution. Easit is an excellent initiative to address these major problems.” University of Sussex staff member
“The easit card makes it affordable for me to travel to work by train rather than car, which also means I don’t need to worry about finding parking in Oxford too, which can be both difficult to find and expensive. I find train travel a much more relaxing way to travel to work so wouldn’t be without my easit card now”. Ms McGreevy, University of Oxford.
With an easit card I am able to save £4.80 per day on my journey to Basingstoke. I now commute 3 or 4 days a week by train whereas I previously used my car 5 days a week prior to the implementation of the easit scheme. Conservation Office, Basingstoke and Borough Council
