Based on its experience with previous revisions, TfL does not anticipate extensive ticket switching as a result of the fare changes being introduced from January 2010.

While some ticket transfers will undoubtedly occur, it is not expected that these will be on a scale sufficient to have a significant effect on the projected revenue yield. *
