Can you travel to Gatwick Airport using Oyster or Contactless?

April 30th, 2015

No, you can’t. If you try to visit this London airport using Transport for London’s Oyster or Contactless payments, you’ll find a line of ticket inspectors waiting to fine you – and everyone else who makes the same mistake – £20.

Plus you’ll get charged a maximum fare on Oyster or Contactless for not ending your journey.

And that’s despite the Gatwick website saying that both have been valid since 2014.

So, watch out. It’s a nasty setup.

2012 (and 2013) London Travelcard Season Ticket Prices

December 29th, 2011

Because these are ridiculously hard, if not impossible, to find on the TFL website, I’ve put the weekly, monthly and annual costs in a spreadsheet.

Edit: Now updated to show 2013 fares, which are even worse. Thanks, Boris..

Data from from a PDF letter published here. Monthly and Annual rates calculated per that document’s instructions. Thanks to Rachel H at Londonist for the link.

Sadly too busy to make a game this year, but here’s a silly animation. Happy whatever, everyone.
