2011 fare rises: Mixed news for Charlton

That groggy first day back at work of 2011 will be bad enough, but it’ll also include fare rises for London’s commuters. For zone 3 stations such as Charlton, Westcombe Park and Woolwich Dockyard, there’s a mixed picture. Most off-peak fares are frozen, but there’s sharp increases to one-day travelcards. Meanwhile, the abolition of travelcards and Oyster price caps for zones 2-6 opens up the possibility of incredibly steep rises for anyone who doesn’t have to travel into central London. There’s no figures yet for paper tickets, or for monthly/ annual travelcards.
