- Bus fares will rise from £1.50 to £1.55
- Single Oyster and contactless Tube fares in zone 1 won’t change (£2.40 – on- and off-peak), but will increase for zones 1-2 journeys to £3 peak and £2.50 off-peak
- The £2 daily access charge for a Boris bike won’t change
- A trip on the cross-Thames cable car will increase to £5 (+50p)
- The £4.90 and £5.90 Tube cash fares for up to 3 and 5 zones will rise to £5.50 and £6 respectively, while the £6 fare for Zones 1-6 won’t change
- Accompanied under 11s will continue to travel free.
