Fares up, but more Oyster lines

Fares up, but more Oyster lines
The New Year will bring a few changes for public transport in London. As usual, it’s an UNhappy New Year for frequent travellers with fare rises coming in. But there’s also a change for Oyster card users, who will be able to use their cards on many more routes. Single bus and tram fares will be rising by 20%, while some tube fares will be up by 18% – although the average tube fare is only up by 3.9%.  It’s journeys in the outer zones that look set to increase the most, which...

A hole in the Tube budget – London Underground in trouble?

... of new lines and upgrades is an obvious target for cuts. Crossrail in particular is a sitting duck for cost-cut advocates. However, London’s public transport network is already falling behind the best in Europe – and could fall even further behind if the capital spending budget is slashed. It doesn’t look good.

Sydney Buses Scrap Section of 311 Route

... easier and services in other areas are more efficient. Nevermind the fact that many of the area’s residents are elderly folks who depend upon the public transport to access shops and entertainment in the city. Lord Mayor Clover Moore is fighting back to reestablish this original route for those residents. “This is Australia’s most densely populated area, with over 1000 people living along the loop.
