The mayor of London Sadiq Khan has announced that Transport for London (TfL) fares will remain frozen for the fourth year.
Buses, trams and single pay-as-you-go Tube and DLR fares will all remain the same until the end of 2020, this is line with the commitment Khan made prior to becoming mayor in 2016.
However, daily, weekly price caps along with weekly, monthly and annual travelcards are not part of the fares freeze.
Khan said, “I am freezing TfL fares again next January, the fourth year in succession I have frozen them.
“Alongside my £1.50 Hopper fare, which allows people unlimited changes on bus and tram journeys for free within an hour, we are making transport more affordable for millions of Londoners.
“This shows what a Labour administration can do. In stark contrast, when he was mayor, Boris Johnson increased TfL fares by a staggering 42%.
“Since 2016, the Tory government has allowed national rail fares to increase by more than 10% despite all the overcrowding and delays.
“If I can freeze fares and provide a better service on TfL services, it’s a disgrace that this Tory government continues to allow failing private rail companies to get away with hiking up their fares.”
