Railways: Tickets

Volume 507: debated on Wednesday 17 March 2010

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport what estimate he has made of the effect on the cost of off-peak rail travel in the London borough of Bexley of the implementation of the Oyster pay-as-you-go agreement. (322453)

The Department for Transport has made no specific analysis of this effect on the London borough of Bexley. Before the launch of Oyster Pay As You Go, some high level analysis was carried out on the likely effects of Pay As You Go fares changes across London as a whole. Within that analysis there were both positive and negative effects, but overwhelmingly those who had been disadvantaged can switch to Pay As You Go and get the best value fares available for their time of travel.
