So the word's out.

Here are the headlines on what fares you'll be paying from next year...

  • A single journey in Zone 1 on Oyster Pay As You Go goes up by 10p to £1.90, and to £1.40 peak time outside Zone 1.
  • Single cash fares stay at £4 but it goes up to £5 for zones 2-5 from £3.50, a 42% increase on the Tube, London Overground and DLR.
  • Two-zone weekly, monthly and annual Travelcards excluding zone 1 go up by 25%.
  • Bus/Tram fares increase to £2.20 cash and £1.30 with an Oyster Card.

You can get the full list of increases from the statement released by TfL here.

Clearly some pretty heavy increases there, but are they too much?

Or have we been let off lightly in these cutting times, could it have been worse?
