A passenger gets issued a Strathclyde Zonecard (all zones) by his employer however he lives in Falkirk.

Is is permissible to travel from Falkirk High [FKK] on the non-stop services to Glasgow Queen Street [GLQ] if he is also in possession of a FKK -Croy [CRO] season ticket? Or does the train need to stop at CRO for this combination to be valid?

Assuming that the ZoneCard is valid to/from Croy then yes that is a valid combination. Condition 19 of the NRCoC tells us that:

You may use two or more tickets for one journey as long as together they cover the entire journey and one of the following applies:

(a) they are both Zonal Tickets unless special conditions prohibit their use in this way. The Ticket Seller will, if you ask, advise you whether you can use a Zonal Ticket in combination with another ticket.

(b) the train you are in calls at a station where you change from one ticket to another;


(c) one of the tickets is a Season Ticket (which for this purpose does not include Season Tickets or travel passes issued on behalf of a passenger transport executive or local authority) or a leisure travel pass, and the other ticket(s) is/are not.

You must comply with any restriction shown on the tickets relating to travel in the trains of a particular Train Company or Train Companies (see Condition 10).

If you do not comply with this Condition, you will be treated as having joined the train with out a ticket and Condition 2 or 4 will apply, either to the entire journey, or from the last station where the train stopped at which at least one of the tickets was valid.

For the purposes of this Condition, a “leisure travel pass” means any multi-journey ticket(excluding Season Tickets) valid for:

(i) at least 7 consecutive days; or

(ii) at least 3 days in a period of at least 7 consecutive days and includes rover tickets, travel passes, flexipass tickets and BritRail passes.

My bold. So as you can see as long as he holds a valid season ticket for FKK - CRO and a ZoneCard valid between CRO - GLQ he is allowed to get the non-stop service between FKK and GLQ
