Answer for London Underground Zones

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The London fare zones were established by London Transport and the then Network South East division of British Rail in the 1980s. The zones have been maintained with very few changes since then.

There is no exact methodology which is used to divide London into fare zones. Any case for change is examined on its own merits.
