London Travelcards to be saved after late deal

Plans to axe daily Travelcards in London are set to be dropped after a new deal was agreed.

Transport for London looked to remove the daily option and consulted on plans earlier this year, claiming it cost them £40 million a year, and sought more funds from railway companies.

That now appears to have happened, with day Travelcards remaining alongside longer length ticket options which were not threatened.

Travelcards cover national rail as well as TfL modes

The vast majority of people in London use oyster or contactless payment, ensuring Travelcards remained mostly the preserve of those living outside.

Critics of plans to drop daily Travelcards stated those same people contributed to London’s economy and included both workers and tourists.

The tickets have exited for 40 years in the capital after being introduced back in May 1983.
