Promise to Pay Notices – how do I print one?

With the arrival of ticket machines on our platforms along the Penistone Line, passengers are encouraged to purchase their tickets before they travel. However, due to the majority of the stations being unstaffed, they are ‘card only’ machines. So, where, you might ask does that leave those passengers who prefer to pay by cash? Well, the machines have a handy little option on them that enables you to print out a ‘Promise to Pay’ notice – however you may struggle to find it on the machine, so we have produced some handy instructions for you. If you plan to pay cash for your ticket on board then you must have one of these notices.
If you do not have one of these you may be issued a Penalty Fare (of at least £20).
Please share this information with others.
