Answer for Fare proposals

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I have already announced that I plan to hold TfL fares in January 2016 by RPI+0 per cent. I am determined to ensure fares are affordable, while balancing the need to maintain unprecedented investment in the transport network to deliver more services in a city growing in size at twice the predicted rate. 

I approved a real terms freeze in fares in 2014 and also in 2015 when a flexible fare structure was also introduced to help part-time workers.  I have protected all free and concessionary travel for older people, students, veterans and disabled Londoners.

I will publish more detail around the January fare changes this autumn.
