Default Government to scrap franchising

The Williams review will recommend an overhaul of Britain’s complicated
ticketing system. A “single-leg” pricing model will be proposed, making it
easier for customers to access the cheapest fare.

The change would bring an end to “split-ticketing” whereby customers are
forced to buy multiple tickets for the same journey to secure the lowest

That is of course complete nonsense. Most AC trips split at B are the
result of AB single leg price + BC single leg price being cheaper.

Petulantly refusing to sell return tickets isn't going to change that.
