Can't see a thread on this yet, BBC News reporting that in one of his first acts as Mayor, Sadiq Khan is introducing a one hour 'hopper' fare on London's buses, whereby if you touch in on a second bus within one hour of touching on your first bus, you won't be charged for the second journey. TFL say that at the moment it will be limited to one additional journey but they hope to expand it to unlimited timed journeys by 2018. Starts in September.
In his first policy act as new mayor of London, Sadiq Khan is introducing a one-hour "hopper-fare" for bus users as promised in his election manifesto.The fare system allows bus passengers to make an extra journey within an hour of touching in when using an Oyster card or contactless payment.
Previously, customers were obliged to pay £1.50 each time they boarded a bus.
The hopper-fare will "help ensure everyone will be able to afford to travel around the city," Mr Khan said.
It is scheduled to be introduced in September....
