Transport For London Fares

News about the Fares for London Transports.


The Mayor, Sadiq Khan, is freezing all fares on buses and trams and all pay as you go and paper single fares on Tube and DLR services.

All Santander Cycles hire and access charges are also frozen, as well as pay as you go journeys on rail services where TfL fares apply.

Daily and weekly caps cannot be included because they are set with Train Companies under guidance from the Department for Transport; the Mayor does not control them.

The following are frozen until 2020:

  • All fares on buses and trams
  • All single pay as you go fares and paper single tickets on Tube and DLR services
  • All Santander Cycles hire and access charges
  • All fares on Emirates Air Line

Certain fares are also frozen until 2020 on:

  • London Overground and TfL Rail
  • River Bus

Travelcard prices and daily and weekly caps are set with the train operating companies and not solely by the Mayor.

These tables show a selection of frozen fares. (All fares shown are adult-rate.)
