    Hi,
    I am thinking about living from home and travelling to Manchester Metropolitan on the train. My thoughts were that buying a season ticket would be cheaper in the long term, can anyone tell me if this is the case and how would you use them when travelling? Give it to the conductor when on the train?
    I'm really not sure, so any light shed on the topic would be greatly appreciated
    Thanks.

    If you bought a year long season ticket they give you a discount (normally 2 months). You need to look at the appropriate rail company site. You don say where you are travelling from. Season tickets are tickets you cna just reuse them as many times as you wnat whilst it is balid. You would normally keep it in your wallet and an inspector checks it ever now and then.

    I'm pretty sure it won't be worth it. Considering unis have about 18-20 weeks holiday per year, that's nearly 5 months that you won't need to use it unless you plan on going to uni in the holidays. Monthly tickets might be more suitable but it still depends on what course you do and whether you'd be going in everyday.
