    Hi there hope your all well

    after a bit of advice

    I am looking at moving to Bletchley possibly and i work in Central London

    My job means i finish work sometimes at 0115am in the morning/evening so would miss the last bletchley train from London

    I can get picked up from the other half at Bedford station which is not a problem and drive back to Bletchley from Bedford.

    Is there such a season ticket i can get that would allow me to Get ON at bletchley to get to work to go to London. Then get the 0129-0159am train from Blackfriars and EXIT BEDFORD station to then drive home

    i have tweeted London Midland to ask them there getting back to me tomo after talking to the pricing manager but thought someone here might know

    thanks

    A Bedford to London Thameslink season ticket is valid via Bletchley into Euston, as well as via Luton into London.

    thanks mate so i will be ok to get on at Bletchley and of at bedford at night

    sounds weird though why is it valid

    not questioning your answer just curious as to why its valid if the towns are so far apart by 20 miles

    Bletchley lies on a permitted route between Bedford and London. It's merely an intermediate along the route, so you are free to start/stop short there.

    Alternatively, but more expensive, is a Milton Keynes-London Terminals AAA Bedford Stations season ticket.

    The OP might need the Travelcard version in order to travel beyond Euston to his workplace. Either that or Oyster PAYG.

    There'd be nothing to stop the OP travelling into Euston, walking to St Pancras and continuing to any of the London Thameslink stations from there.
