New figures from Transport for London (TfL) have revealed more than 100m journeys have been made using the Mayor of London’s Hopper fare - a year on from its launch.

After becoming operational on September 11, 2016, the fare has enabled passengers to make a £1.50 pay-as-you-go bus or tram journey and change onto another for free within an hour of starting a journey.

Around 325,000 journeys are now being made every weekday using the Hopper fare, and its continuing success should encourage Londoners to switch from their cars back to public transport, which supports the Mayor’s campaign to make the capital a greener city.

Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, commented on the news: "I’m delighted that 100m journeys have been made using our new ticket. In allowing passengers to change buses for free within an hour, I’m proud that we’re cutting the cost of travel for thousands of Londoners.

"The cost of travel must never be a barrier planned from next year, we’re continuing to make public transport an easier and more affordable option for [everyone]."
