The 3.20 cash price for those travelling outside of the central zone will increase to 3.50. Young people aged 11 to 15 will still pay a flat-rate, pay-as-you-go fare, although this will increase from 55p to 65p, continuing to be half the minimum adult zone one fare. REFURBISHMENT work has been put on hold across much of the network, including congestion relief, escalator renovations, redecoration and plans to make many stations step-free. However, 97m works to make Green Park readily accessible for the disabled will go ahead. Pay-as- you-go will rise 20p, with zone one journeys costing 1.80. Travelcards will be frozen, although the two- zone weekly card will rise to 19. PASSENGERS face less frequent services on some of the routes with the most buses, which may include the 28 from Wandsworth to Kensal Rise and the 31 from Shepherds Bush to Camden Town. TfL officials were also unable to rule out cutting any routes completely. A single journey will rise from 1 on pay-as-you-go Oyster cards to 1.20. The cost of a seven-day bus and tram pass is also rising from 13.80 to 16.60. THE daily charge will be increased from 8 to 10 for motorists who continue to pay by phone or on the internet after having driven into the zone. The charge will be 9 for drivers using new account system CC Auto Pay, which will allow automatic weekly payment. The new charges are expected to come into force by December next year to coincide with the removal of the western extension to the zone. UP to 100,000 passengers using mainline services to and from Paddington face a double whammy of disruption in rows over working conditions for train drivers. The 900 First Great Western drivers are tipped to vote for a strike over claims that some were forced to work when unwell. Aslef, the drivers union, is also ordering members not to work on their rest days. The result will be declared on 12 November. Train times may also suffer as Aslef has told drivers to go at 20mph when passing ungated level crossings. 1.80. However, the majority of regular commuters will have Oyster travelcard fares frozen, while free or cut-price travel for children, pensioners and jobseekers will be unaffected. Mr Johnson also said there would be a cut in bus sched- ules and fewer off-peak Tube trains in outer London, while refurbishment work at many stations would be shelved. The Mayor said: Nobody wants to make a decision like t h i s , e s p e c i a l l y w h e n Londoners are feeling the effects of the recession. However, the mistakes of the past and the economic cli- mate have conspired to present us with a huge challenge. He said the grim rises were necessary to balance Transport for Londons finances, badly hit by falling passenger num- bers and the collapse of Tube maintenance firm Metronet. Overall, bus fares will rise by 12.7 per cent and Tube fares by 3.9 per cent. Inflation now stands at 1.1 per cent. Caroline Pidgeon, Liberal Democrat chair of the London Assembly transport commit- tee, said: This will be a slap in the face for the millions who will see no increase in their pay this year. But a spokesman for Mr Johnson blamed the policies of previous mayor Ken Livingstone saying: We have to have a reality check from the fantasy that perpetuated beforehand.
