Answered By: 
The Mayor

The total amount TfL is set to receive from the Association of Train Operating Companies (ATOC) in relation to Freedom Pass journeys made on the former West Anglia routes this financial year is £2.5 million.

This money ultimately comes from London Councils as part of the deal London Councils negotiate each year with ATOC to compensate the train companies for accepting Freedom Passes on their services in London.

ATOC have not provided TfL with an estimate of the number of Freedom Pass passenger trips on the former West Anglia routes. TfL therefore cannot provide a per passenger trip figure as requested.
