The London Tube Map Has Been Redrawn And You’re About To Save Money


Catchy title, huh? This ain’t no mumbo-jumbo click-bait though: if you’re a commuter living in east London you will be saving hundreds of pounds this year, thanks to the redrawing of the Zone 3 fare boundary. See that funny 2/3 section on the map below? Nope, that doesn’t mean that you’re two thirds of a person for living in West Ham, it simply means you’ll now be charged Zone 2 fares when you’re headed into the centre.


And before you start with your, ‘but what if’s?’, we can assure you that prices for travelling out of London will not change. You’ll pay the same charge as if you were still travelling from Zone 3. Confused? Don’t fret. All this means is that you will always be charged the cheaper fare. In other words, you’re rich! (Ha, likely story).

Overall, the cost of journeys across the National Rail network have increased by 1.1% whilst TfL journeys will be 1% higher this week. It may not sound like a lot but with the amount we find ourselves spending on travel in the capital, it’s nice to know that at least some Londoners will be making a saving in 2016.

Pints in Stratford, anyone?
