New Year, New Site

After 11 years it is time to make some major changes to this site. The theme is quite dated and definitely not mobile friendly. Making it so would be a major project, so I’ve taken the decision to effectively start again. With the coronavirus pandemic and associated lockdown there have been no new comments here since last year, so it’s a good time to draw a line under things. Don’t worry though, this site will remain for all the old posts and comments.

The new site is Oyster Fares Central and already has some discussions going on in the new forum. It also has a latest news page which is where new posts will now be made. The main pages on this site will be transferred over to the new site during the coming days, with links back here for the archived comments.

See you on the other side!

Happy Fares Change Day …

… or not, as the case is this year.

In case you hadn’t yet heard, the annual fares revision which usually takes place on Jan 2nd every year has been postponed this year.  It’s currently scheduled for Monday 1st March, but that is dependant on getting the data to the software provider by Friday 15th January.  Thus it is not certain that Oyster and contactless fares will definitely rise on the same day as the rest of the National Rail fares.  Watch this space.

If you wish to discuss this post, please use this thread oysterfares.com/topic/tfl-fare-increase-2021 in our new forum.
