Croydon travellers suffers massive Daily Travelcard Fares Increases

From Jan 1st 2011 TFL Fares increases across London will increase by an average of 6.8% but Outer London travellers who buy one day travelcards will see increases of up to 66%. Addiscombe and East Croydon residents will be amongst those most impacted upon. The Mayor Boris Johnson, has reduced the range of travelcards available, the new range will comprise Anytime and Off Peak tickets valid in Zones 1-2, 1-4 or 1-6. Zones 2-6 (Anytime and Off Peak), Zones 1-3 (Anytime)  and Zones 1-5 (Anytime) variants will be withdrawn.

The withdrawal of the 2-6 and 1-5 Zones travelcards will see Croydon residents suffering huge increases. Passengers who travel from East Croydon (Zone 5) to London (Zone 1) will see their daily Anytime travelcard increase from £12.60 to £15.00. Travellers from East Croydon (Zone 5) to Clapham Junction or Canary Wharf (Zone 2) will see their Anytime travelcard cost increase from £9.00 to £15.00 per day, a 66% increase, as they are now being charged as if they are travelling to Central London.
