Does anyone have any idea of reducing the cost of the above journey from having to purchase two singles, totalling £8.25, ie.

Sheffield - Doncaster
Route Any Permitted
Anytime Day Single
£2.85 Y-P

and

Doncaster - Wakefield Westgate
Route Any Permitted
Anytime Day Single
£5.40 Y-P

I will be using XC for the first leg and EC for the second leg. 16-25 Railcard held.

Cheers.

Doncaster to Barnsley* is SYPTE-priced and reduces the second one.
Whether or not a single ticket between Sheffield and somewhere between Wakefield and Barnsley is valid via Doncaster and Wakefield I do not have the means to check at the moment.

*or wherever, easier to give routeing points

There used to be a good saving splitting at somewhere like South Elmsall on the Donny - Leeds line, but would mean having to wait for the hourly Northern service compared to an EC (unless condition 19 comes into play, which it doesn't look like it does in this case).

EDIT - still is:

Doncaster - South Elmsall SDS £1.60 YP
South Elmsall - Wakefield Westgate SDS £1.65 YP

I am travelling late at night so don't have the option of using a stopper.

It must be the EC non-stop service between Donny and Wakefield I'm afraid.

Hmm, seems like I wrongly assumed that it would not be valid via Donny. :oops:

I found a fare for under £3 for Doncaster - Wakefield at the last minute before travelling last night though. ;)

Thanks all.
