Is there any easy way to work out the monthly season ticket price from Burton on Trent to Nottingham?

I'm trying to load the season ticket calculator on my mobile but it doesnot seem to work with this browser.....

http://brfares.com is quite easy to use. It's £233.50 a month (and usually more cost effective to buy a month plus a few days, to take you from a Monday to a Friday - even more so if planned to coincide with any leave)

It's not cheaper to split at Derby, though might be if you don't mind using the Red Arrow between Nottingham and Derby - I'm not sure how much that costs though, or if you could be bothered

28 days is £95 for any bus within trentbarton land.

You could use the bus between Burton and Nottingham, using the X38 & Redarrow.

Some of the TOC web sites (such as Southern and Greater Anglia) also have season ticket calculators on them, although I don't know how well they'd work with your 'phone.

As the national rail version isn't that complex a web page, you may find downloading a different browser helps you more than finding a different site would do.

Yeah but I would then need a third bus to work because it isn't in the centre.

This isn't a goer, I need a new job before I can even think of moving to burton.

Any particular reason you want to move to Burton? It's a hole. (I lived there part-time for several years.)

Some other options:

Burton on Trent - Willington £63
Willington - Nottingham £147.50

The service to willington is a lot more limited though.

Thanks for these. To the person asking why I want to move to Burton? My parents are getting older and I want to be nearer.

Especially thanks to the person who suggested Willington- that might be a real option as it has easy access to the A38. I'll look into that.

Willington to Nottingham season ticket is relatively poor value and the service from Willington is poor for most of the day (2 hour gaps). An Anytime Day Return is £7.90 compared to a weekly at £38.40, monthly £147.50 or annual £1,536.

Depending on how often the OP is travelling they may wish to get a Burton - Willington season and combine it with Anytime Day Return tickets from Willington to Nottingham. Such a split would not require the train to call at Willington.

Understood.

Tutbury & Hatton is worth looking into if the connections at Derby might work for you - nice place and only 5ish miles from Burton by bike or bus. Willington is ok as others have mentioned. I like Melbourne but no train there any more, sadly!
