Question

Do you now accept that the most simple and effective discount to counter the dwindling number of passengers on the cable car would be to include such journeys as part of the Travelcard system as  proposed in the recent Lib Dem Group budget amendment?

The Emirates Air Line fares strategy was designed to cover the costs of construction and operation over time. There are currently no plans to incorporate the Emirates Air Line into the Travelcard but, as with all TfL transport modes, Emirates Air Line fares will be kept under review.

Travelcard holders currently receive a discount on the Emirates Air Line cash fare, matching the Oyster pay as you go fare.
