The Railway Employees & Public Transport Association (REPTA) has announced that it is to close its membership Association from December 31, 2023.
REPTA has been serving the railway industry and, in later years, the transport industry in general, for over 150 years. Initially set up to provide reciprocal travel concessions for participating railways throughout the world, it expanded to arrange discounts for its membership in shops, attractions, holidays and insurance. Membership peaked at over 60,000, but in view of the multitude of alternative offers now available, membership has fallen to the extent that REPTA is no longer viable.
The offers negotiated for members will be valid until closure.
