The Mayor

Weekly capping for Oyster Pay As You Go customers launched for bus and tram customers on 17th December 2018. At the time I confirmed that Transport for London and the Train Operating Companies were finalising plans to introduce the cap on London Underground and Rail services by Spring 2019. This work is continuing, and I will make an announcement about the launch date when the arrangements have been finalised.
