Cheaper fares to zone 1 in PM peakJan 03, 2015
One of the changes introduced this month concerns journeys starting outside zone 1 and ending in zone 1 during the afternoon peak. Where TfL set the fare it has been off-peak for a couple of years now, but from this month it is extended to all rail journeys. Unlike TfL fares, with the NR set fares this does mean that it will be cheaper to travel to zone 1 than zone 2 at this time. It should be noted that the dual zoned stations work as they should which will be frustrating for people using Vauxhall and Elephant & Castle NR stations. Travel from Clapham Junction to Vauxhall will be charged peak as will travel from Vauxhall to Waterloo, but Clapham Junction to Waterloo will be off-peak.
