The unlimited ‘Hopper’ is here
From today, bus and tram users across London can make as many journeys as they want within an hour for the price of one, thanks to the extension of the Mayor’s landmark ‘Hopper’ fare.
Originally launched in September 2016, the ‘Hopper’ fare has already helped millions of passengers make affordable bus or tram journeys across London.
The upgrade also allows passengers to travel on Tube or rail services in between their bus journeys, which wasn’t possible before, helping even more people save money. It is estimated by Transport for London (TfL) that around 13,000 additional passengers will now benefit from the unlimited ‘Hopper’ fare every single day.
The continuing success of the ‘Hopper’ will help encourage people across London to switch from their cars to public transport – supporting the Mayor’s wider work to clean up London’s air and improve the local environment. The ‘Hopper’ is of particular benefit to Londoners on lower incomes, who rely on bus services more to get around, as well as those with pushchairs and small children.
