The cost of a single bus journey in London is set to rise from £1.65 to £1.75 after an announcement by TfL today.
A one day bus pass or cap will increase from £4.95 to £5.25.
The general increase on TfL fares is around the planned increase on rail fares set by central government at 5.9 per cent.
On the tube, a single zone 1 journey will increase from £2.50 to £2.80.
Mayor Sadiq Khan has pinned blame on central government which has stipulated conditions on funding.
However the Mayor has also chosen to reduce congestion charge times for vehicles in central London. An estimate this week put the cost at £60 – £70 million. Traffic levels also increased 60 per cent hampering bus journey times.
Details of journeys from outer zones to zone 1 – which many in south east London use on the Elizabeth line – are yet to be revealed.
