    I'd assume it would be 4 Callander weeks from time of booking?

    My daughters monthly school bus ticket is for 28 days if that helps.

    Amazing how bus and train companies have the cheek to call them monthly tickets, yet manage to make an entirely extra month of the year for you to pay for.
    365/28=13.04

    4 x 13 for train tickets but you only get paid for 12 months. Something wrong here....

    Is that the same as 'Calendar' weeks or are yours different?

    Its very confusing, i've read online that it will vary by the month so Feb would have 28 days whereas july would have 31 days....

    My monthly train pass paid by DD always runs to the same date the following month i.e. 20th - 20th. That's with London midland

    As above ...From the day you buy until midnight a month later. It's not 12 equal months but that life.

    So...a monthly ticket bought on 31st Jan, would expire on 28th Feb - agree or disagree?

    Agree. They only stipulate 'calendar month' when its from the 1st day of the month to the last day of the month

    If you buy a yearly travel card or bus pass here in London, you only pay the price of 10 monthly tickets.
