Improved Journey HistoryAug 04, 2011
An eagle-eyed visitor has spotted that TfL have introduced a new journey history display recently. It is much improved on the old version. You can still only see details for the last eight weeks but the history is broken up into week long chunks. Within each week the entry and exit details for each journey (or part of a multi-leg journey) are matched up so that you only see the fare for that journey. All the confusing entry charge deductions and exit re-imbursements are hidden. There is also a clear indication of when the fare for a journey has been capped. Unfortunately it still won’t show both ends of a journey that includes travel outside of the zones covered by a season ticket. Whilst I’m sure that the weekly display will help people who use their card a lot, I’d like to see the option to didplay all eight weeks in one go.
You can still access the old version if you want, which can sometimes have useful information, so I hope they keep that available. You can also send them feedback on the new layout. I’ll update the journey history page with a new screenprint when I’ve had a chance to fully investigate the new system.
Finally, there is no change to the requirement to have purchased online top-up before you can access the journey history online.
