Enhanced compensation

Has your regular commute been running late? We offer enhanced compensation for season ticket holders who consistently experience delays of 15 minutes or more.

What’s enhanced compensation?

While we’ll do everything we can to keep your commute moving, sometimes the unexpected puts us behind schedule. Our Delay Repay scheme compensates you for any journey delayed by 15 minutes or more.

If delays persist for several days running, season ticket holders are also entitled to enhanced compensation.

Enhanced compensation is payable when you experience delays to your journey of 30 minutes or more on any 12 days in a reporting period.
