The Docklands is one of my favourite bits of London! Just get the day travelcards, they might've gone up but they ain't half bad still. £6.30 for unlimited travel in London between 09:30-04:30 the next day? Bargain..
There's still something profoundly wrong with the way Transport For London is run. In most cities with a metro system, the prices are a fraction of the cost. London has a very old system which they have to update but I'm not seeing any visible improvement. The prices aren't really justified.
Not sure that O' Toole guy should be in charge. I'm still puzzled why they brought him in.
£1.50 is not bad, in my home town its £1.80 single for about a 2 mile journey into town.
Manchester is not much better thanks to the big monopoly companies like Stagecoach. To get to my house to town it (3.9 miles) it costs £1.80. This journey also takes at leat half an hour.
I buy a Megarider which costs £8.50 a week.
The Metrolink is also very expensive, I think its safe to say its dearer than the tube.
You can have a normal tube travel card on one day passes (not weekly, monthly, yearly).
Students get 30 per cent dicount.
Bus is free for under 16s. Travel cards include being able to use the Bus as well.
What do they look like then? As long as you know how to identify them, sit/stand by the yellow beeper and then you see him and use it as quickly as possible.
i think the prices are pretty reasonable and kids have the right to be able to go to school for free
