The trade union Transport Salaried Staffs' Association (TSSA) has praised the engineering feat of the new Elizabeth line but has described the ticketing as a “dog’s breakfast”.
The TSSA’s general secretary has criticised the complicated fares structure applied to the new line for those travelling beyond the TfL zones 1-6 structure.
Manuel Cortes has called on the fares system to be simplified.
“To make Crossrail the success it should be, the government must sort out the ticketing mess which makes fares a dog’s breakfast,” he says.
“The complicated combination of TfL fares, contactless and national rail fares structures makes the mind boggle and will undoubtedly create additional work for station and ticket office staff.“
