Question

I have received furious correspondence from constituents about the 25 % increase in Oyster bus fares.

If you use Oyster, what has been the increase in a bus fare in Outer London in real terms since May 2000 using the RPI index to discount the increase?

Comparing the 2000 cash single fare with Oyster today, after taking account of RPT and daily capping indicates a 6% increase.All fares income is reinvested in maintaining and enhancing TfL's services.
