Discount rail card for armed forces veterans (<80% disabled)
Disabled persons rail card for veterans who are below eighty per cent disabled.
Injured armed forces veterans who are confirmed <80% disabled do not qualify for a disabled persons rail card (qualification is minimum 80% disablement).
Veterans are being prejudiced because they do not qualify for an armed forces rail card as they are no longer a member of the armed forces, however they could be 70% disabled and not qualify a disabled person’s rail card either.
