More brilliant news for Londoners yesterday.
Mayor Sadiq Khan announced he’s increasing London transport fare prices by 5.9%, a bit more than the 4% originally mooted last year.
Considering he’s also confirmed he will expand the ULEZ zone to the whole of Greater London, meaning a 12.50 charge to drive a non-ULEZ compliant car, this is just another hefty hit on the pocket of Londoners who live on a budget. So for example, if my calculations are correct, from where I am in zone 4, to travel to zone 1 during peak time sees my one-way fare rise from £4.30 to £4.56. On the way back it rises from £3.10 to £3.29 That would work out to £7.85 That ain’t cheap. The trouble is if you drive into central London you’ll pay £15 for congestion charging, and if you have a non-ULEZ compliant car, it’s another £12.50. However, if you do have a ULEZ-compliant car and aren’t going into the congestion zone, or if you have an electric car, then you don’t have to pay congestion charging either – for now, and make sure you register it first online. All you’d have to worry about then is parking. So much encouraging people to use public transport.
Hello, we can’t see the stop ulez leaflet or flyer on your events section, any idea where to find it other than the end of the video
