Dear Kent Community Rail Partnership,
We are writing to update you on the Day Travelcard.
We are pleased to confirm that, after close collaboration with the Rail Delivery Group (RDG), we have now been able to find a solution which allows the Day Travelcard to continue to be accepted on TfL services, while still meeting the terms of our funding agreement with Government. This means Day Travelcards can continue to be bought by customers as part of their train tickets to London.
This agreement follows a long period of negotiation by RDG representing train operators, TfL and the Department for Transport to find a solution which secures the future of the tickets while at the same time enabling us to meet our budget commitments.
The proposal also includes a one-off price increase on Day Travelcards bought outside Zones 1-6 as part of a National Rail ticket from March 2024 (on average 3 per cent) which will be in addition to any general regulated fares increase at the time.
Thank you for taking part in this discussion and sharing your views.
Transport for London
