Answered By: 
The Mayor

The most recent survey on which London Underground's fare evasion figures are based was carried out in November 2006. From this survey, the level of ticket irregularity was 2.63% of passengers (with estimated 1.88% loss of revenue).For the 4 weeks ending 6 January, this works out to a fare evasion loss £1.86m.
