Prospective Lib Dem MP Jackie Porter has called for the introduction of part-time season tickets to cut the cost of transport for local workers.

Jackie Porter said, "We must respond to modern working patterns, the days of everyone working 9 to 5, 5 days a week are long gone.

"These proposals could save local workers thousands of pounds each year. They could end an outdated system that currently prices many people out of work all together."

A Winchester to London season ticket currently costs £4696 per year. Introducing part-time season tickets would save someone working three days a week £1878.40 each year.
