Question

In June this year, you said that you remained hopeful that Pay As You Go acceptance across London would be achieved towards the end of this year or at the latest at the start of 2010. However, on page 116 of the Mayor's Transport Strategy, it says that Oyster Cards will be accepted on all London National Rail stations by the end of 2010. Could you explain the discrepancy?

The Mayor

As I announced on 23 November, Oyster pay as you go will be introduced on National Rail services within Greater London from 2 January 2010. The error on page 116 of the online version of the Mayor's Transport Strategy will be corrected to reflect this.
