West Midlands Railway provides a regional commuter service for those in the Birmingham metropolitan area, as well as calling at stations such as Shrewsbury, Wolverhampton and Hereford. You may use split train tickets for travel on all West Midlands Trains.
West Midlands Trains is a train operating company in the United Kingdom. It operates passenger trains on the West Midlands franchise between London and the English Midlands under two trade names: West Midlands Railway (within the West Midlands region) and London Northwestern Railway (outside the West Midlands region).
Splitting your train tickets on West Midlands Trains is allowed and is when you purchase separate tickets for two or more sectors of the West Midlands Trains rail route you wish to travel instead of just one more expensive through ticket without affecting your travel options in any way.
For example, if you wanted to travel on West Midlands Trains from Station A to Station D, you would expect to buy a ticket direct from A to D. However, you may find it a lot cheaper to buy a ticket from A to B, and another from B to C and still another from C to D for a cheaper combined train ticket price. This is especially true when not all sectors of your journey are during peak time.
So, by buying several tickets that in combination make up your whole West Midlands Trains route, you could massively reduce your travel cost and you will still travel on the same West Midlands train, at the same time and most probably in the same seat but pay a lot less by using split tickets. This is what split ticketing on West Midlands Trains is all about.
