Counting The Costs Of PAYG v Annual Travel Card

AM Roger Evans says part-time workers and cyclists save up to £1,300 a year

GLA Conservative Roger Evans has designed a graphic which shows commuters how much they can save now that daily Oyster fares have been cut.

Are you better off with an Annual Travelcard or Pay As You Go? Depending on where you live, you could save up to £1,300 a year if you work part-time, remotely, or choose to walk or cycle for part of the working week.

GLA Conservative Assembly Member, Roger Evans, said: “The Mayor of London’s decision to lower the cap on daily Oyster fares will benefit the millions of part-time and home workers across London, who don’t need to commute by tube or rail for 5 days a week. It also gives people a real incentive to cut their costs by being more flexible about how they get to work.

"Making commuting cheaper and easier for people with varied work and travel patterns is a priority for me, and after two policy reports and a recent 90-day public consultation for Londoners, I’m pleased the Mayor and transport bosses have listened and are acting.

"My infographic shows you how much you can save under the new fares system, if you work part-time, remotely, or choose to walk or cycle to the office for part of the week.”
