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.

We are thrilled to have been shortlisted for our Huddersfield Station Project, having already been awarded the Huddersfield Civic Society Community Award for the project it is double excitement!
The Huddersfield Station Project – ‘Together at Huddersfield Station’ is a true representation of what community rail is all about. We worked with a variety of different community groups, both promoting rail travel and also engaging the participants in helping to make improvements to Platform 2. The project has really brightened up Platform 2!
The awards are to be held in Glasgow on Thursday 4th October.
