It was recently announced many UK train ticket offices at train stations across the UK would close permanently - forcing commuters to go ticketless. See if your area is affected

It was confirmed on Wednesday (July 5) that ticket offices at train stations across the UK will be closed permanently. Despite office closures, face-to-face will remain at some of the biggest stations across the nation, such as London Waterloo, London Marylebone and Manchester Piccadilly.

Despite the huge move, Brits will still have multiple ways to purchase train tickets. These include buying straight from train operators’ apps or websites, using self-service machines at stations or by "tapping in" with contactless or Oyster cards.

A Rail Delivery Group spokesperson said: "No redundancy notices have been served to staff. Alongside public consultations, train operators have issued a letter to trade unions which opens consultation on managing the transition in a way that minimises the impact of the changes.

“Examples include moving to a new multi-skilled role and comprehensive re-training and re-skilling, staff moving to other roles and the potential for a voluntary severance scheme. Train companies are committed to treating staff, who are hugely valued, fairly and will continue to engage constructively with unions at a local level to manage the transition."
