Back in November we told you that Sadiq Khan had frozen TfL fares until 2020, and we all wooed and cheered! But then we found out that the Mayor’s powers are limited to setting the individual fares and, actually, daily and weekly caps are still subject to change.
Turns out they’re raising the fares by an average of 2.3 per cent in the new year. (Who said 2017 was looking promising, eh?!). Daily caps for zones 1-3 will shoot up by 10p, and weekly travelcards will rise from £38 to £38.70. Seems like rather a small change, but it actually means that we’re probably better off paying as we go.
On the plus side, we still have Sadiq’s 2 for 1 Hopper Bus Fares, which were introduced earlier in 2016. And we also have feet. Take a look at this tube map that tells you how many steps there are between each station.
