With the summer holidays now well underway, Transport for London (TfL) has launched a new campaign encouraging Londoners and visitors to explore everything London has to offer through the ‘Wonderful World of Off-Peak’.
Off-peak fares apply on weekdays before 06:30, between 09:30 and 15:59, and after 19:00, plus all day at weekends and on bank holidays.
Using pay as you go with a contactless card or Oyster, off-peak fares including Zone 1 start at £2.40 and off-peak adult Tube, DLR and London Overground fares within Zones 2-6 are just £1.50. Customers can also benefit from automatic Daily capping which means that they won’t pay more than the cost of the equivalent Day Travelcard regardless of the number of trips made.
In addition, the Mayor’s Hopper fare applies all day and night, allowing Londoners to take unlimited bus and tram journeys across the capital within an hour for just £1.50, with the total cost capped at £4.50 for the whole day.
Children under 11 travel free on buses, Tube and most rail services in London with a valid Zip card and those over 60 can travel free with an 60 plus or Freedom Pass. There are also a wide range of discounted travel options available for adults.
To help people plan days out across London this summer, TfL has partnered with Time Out to create a new interactive cultural map of London – www.timeout.com/culturaltflmap – highlighting cultural attractions close to more than 300 stations across London. A simple click on the stations highlighted on the map will reveal museums, art galleries and even street art near each station and plan a journey to the attractions using TfL’s Journey Planner.
