Fares data is released by Rail Settlement Plan periodically, and can be downloaded from the ATOC Industry Data site.

The ATOC Fares Feed contains details of the available tickets, their prices and restrictions, between any two stations on the railway.

The feed is updated each January, May and September.

Instructions for using the feed are provided, however they do not cover the process of calculating fares.


The fares data is held in a number of plain-text, fixed-format files:
