Not that it affects me anylonger I will sign it because I know of many people it does affect...high travel costs to work, where people have no option but to pay is pricing people out of certain areas and certain jobs... Housing and transport are a necessity when working in any job....they have got you by the short and curlies afraid to say.

Not sure what he's done is that bad, TBH. The single fare off-peak seems to be as before, so if you only make 2 journeys per day it makes stuff all difference.

It only affects those who will travel alot, and in that case he's effectively removed the concept of peak & off peak and introduced a flat rate. Off peak loses, peak gains. And if you travelled in peak times, the cap from zone 6 has been reduced by £4.10, so you'd be saving money.

I do take your point however, that zones 1-3 only gain, no matter what. I'm zone 4, and thats hardly outer London, and I lose out off-peak, but gain in peak times.

What about buses? You don't touch out with the oyster card so if you if a cap is applied I suppose it is for the zone you get on? Does anyone know?

Busses are flat rate, so are the trams.

Yes £1.50. I am in zone 2. If I take a number of tube journeys in zone 1 and 2, followed by a bus journey to zone 4, and another bus home to zone 2, will I benefit from zone 1 and 2 capping?

Should do as far as I know. There are no zones on the buses, a zone one travelcard is valid on buses all over London, right the way out to zone 6. Similarly a zone 2-3 travelcard is valid on central London buses.

Buy a car and drive to a more central zone then. If that's not cheaper then obviously until it is cheaper Zone 6 tickets are still cheap. Ultimately that's what its competing with, other forms of transport.

Not saying I dont share the sentiment, 8.90 for the one day Im in London most years was obscene enough for having to sit next to the unhinged pond life that makes up most of London, but that's why I avoid London.

Treat it as a message to get the hell out from the amoral usury profiting shithole!
