Question

East London stations such as Stratford, Bromley-by-Bow and West Ham have moved into Zone 2 / 3 in the last few months. I welcome this and ask the Mayor to move Wembley Park station from the current zone  4 to 3. There is a strong case for this as the station is a prideful choice of commuters to Wembley Stadium and the Arena and is the first station on the Jubilee Line to be in zone 4 and the first one on the Metropolitan Line. I'd also like to point out that the Met Line has no stops between Finchley Road and Wembley Park - it is the only underground line that does not serve Zone 3.Zone 3 designation for Wembley Park station would save my Brent commuters in the region of £340 per year and put the station on par with the East London stations like Stratford. My constituents have raised this issue - can you please ask TfL to strongly look at the feasibility for this?

Answered By:

I appreciate that local residents and commuters across London would like to see Wembley Park rezoned, but I have no plans to initiate any rezoning.

There are a great many number of compelling cases across London for rezoning, each of which has considerable financial implications for TfL.

My decision to freeze all TfL fares for four years will make travel more affordable for all Londoners, rather than those in specific zones or using particular stations.
