London fares to stay frozen in 2020
Transport for London fares are to be unchanged in 2020, which will be the last year of a four-year commitment by the Mayor Sadiq Khan to keep fares frozen. The freeze will cover fares for single pay-as you go journeys on the Underground and Docklands Light Railway, and also on trams and buses. However, Travelcards will increase in price to allow for the expected 2.5 per cent increase in National Rail fares in January. TfL’s budget is in deficit, and the situation has been made worse by the loss of fares income from the delayed Elizabeth Line, which is unlikely to open before 2021.
