It's doesn't make sense. It encourages more than the vulnerable and the elderly to see if they can have a go on the buses. I've heard this today: "the buses are free, innit?" from a person who wasn't visibly vulnerable or elderly only to be turned away from the driver. Plus there are more than three types of bus in London, with only one type with middle doors focused on for this treatment.


Approximately 200 different viruses can cause the common cold so no a cold is not a virus, it is a symptom of one of many viruses. That is the reason you can't get a cold vaccine.

You live in London not the Highlands, walk or shop local. Public transport is only for key workers not shopping trips. Save lives.

I had to apply online once they introduced that option, because I didn't receive anything for weeks after applying on the phone and saw other people commenting that they received a refund within days of phoning. They did charge a £5 fee.


Did anyone receive any TFL refund since this announce ?


Now you can apply online for the refund without having to wait for a person in the phone, but as customers are saying they are not waving the admin fee + they are not calculating from the date of last use. BEFORE you do this online make snapshots and download as many information from the oyster you need because after you won't be able to access to any information from that oyster.


also a note to everyone on refund - it is calculated based on 52 weeks - 6 weeks because of the free extra travel, so essentially 322 days basis rather than 365 days.... which means expect less to be paid into your bank account


FYI all. I was on the phone for 1 hour before talking to someone, and compared TFL estimated calculations vs my calculations before he processed my monthly travelcard and PAYG balances, TFL was out by £5!!!! Which is the £5 admin/deposit fee that is SUPPOSEDLY waived during COVID19!!! I pointed this out to the guy but poor sod can only rely on TFL system, his explaination was that's how the system generated the refund amount based on "ordinarily charged". It may not be much, but this is really sneaky on TFL part, announcing one thing and doing the exact opposite! Refund estimated 10-14 working days.

Yeah, I had no trains and a dismal replacement bus service when I came home from them back then, so I can sympathise somewhat, took me about two hours. Glad you enjoyed the fireworks though! I agree, well worth a tenner.


I was there last night and it was great. Well worth a tenner. The journey home on the other hand was appalling.


Did Trafalgar square decades ago. They cancelled the event, couldnt drink alcohol, couldnt leave when there. Worst Nye ever, never again.

Must have been a glitch. After attempting a few too many times, I deleted the app and started all over again. All ok now!


Installed the app just now and trying to register, I get an error message saying, "Sorry there's a problem with your registration: Invalid promotion" Also, it wants to charge me £2 to sign up. Am I doing something wrong?


Download the app and plan your journey ahead. Usually you will find bikes in zone 1, 2 and 3. Except for north London.


so basically 30 mins is free then you have to dock in?? what if there are no b ikes at the place you go to??

Has anyone managed to get a triggering email? Have signed up and used my card to make a few contactless journeys and it’s not triggered an email and the 10% back hasn’t credited yet.


Wow, if own an AMEX, surely you will never notice 10% saving! Need Megabucks and credit rating to match to get one. TFL needs to make it a deal for everyone, like normal man's with a debit card..


Im a Amex gold card holder and i dont get any of these good ones, e.g. the supermarket offer going on. why is that??


Off topic: I see that a lot of people have Amex, but when i read T&C i cant see enough advantages to get one. May i'm missing sonething?


I hate how this deal isn't given to the people that would actually use it.. I use tfl contactless daily and no sign of it anywhere. My friend uses a monthly travel card and he has the offer.

So we should only obey laws that prevent fatalities? I'm pretty sure there is a raft of laws that don't fall in this category. B&C we will probably never know D - What laws are you prioritising when you condone cyclists running red lights exactly? And what exactly is unjust about asking cyclists to obey traffic laws? I will get upset if cyclists use pavements if there is no cycle path. I'm pretty sure they can tell the difference, and cyclists don't use pavements because they are confused, they use them as a short cut, because they want to avoid traffic queues or are afraid to be on the road. Bicycles are defined as vehicles and have to obey traffic laws as vehicles. If cyclists are afraid to be on the road, choose a different type of transport, simple as that


I walk round a path to my local waitrose and roughly once a week I see someone cycling / scootering (some electric) at what I estimate to be circa 15mph passing only 2 feet away from pedestrians inc. small children dogs etc yes most don't cycle at that speed but unfortunately some selfish dangerous ones do...


I don't think many cyclists would be doing those speeds on the pavement, no disrespect in pointing out the obvious but pavements aren't like roads, people moving in different directions, sometimes in crowds, it's not an easy place to pick up speed but I do concede that given the movement, bicycles can become hazardous regardless of speed.


Of course a car carries much more force but the speed of some cyclists would mean they would contact with pedetrians somewhere between 10-15+ mph.


I'm not saying it's not possible, it can frighten people, people do very occasionally get hit but rarely ever killed. And whilst this is bad I think it needs to be put in perspective. A cyclist hitting you 5 mph is nothing like being hit by a car at 30-50mph even if the cyclist may be travelling at 10-25mph

The government is responsible (of course) for governance over our transportation. The scheme is not paid for by central government, its paid for by TFL + a sponsor. (TFL re-using money it gets from the congestion charge - so its a reasomably fair system. Its also not free)


Exactly Gov shouldn't be funding these


Banks are not the government, exactly If Santander has their branding all over the bike it should be their responsibility, I don't think the government should be putting a penny towards Londoners having free rent bikes


I was actually replying to TopTrump. But your idea is absurd. Banks are not the government. Perhaps we should get grocery stores to add a monthly banana+bike subscription to boost fruit sales in their dying high street stores? (Does this metaphor help? Bank accounts are just a retail product, you can't force a link between them)


Tell me what's wrong with my idea No cost on Taxpayer to fund Londoner getting free bike hires Banks could offer do promotions which will boost their revenue for their dying bank

Lol, fair enough.


Erm, no, that's the whole point.There is free travel due to the delay in the new trains. Which have now arrived. That's eight brand new 4 carriage trains so there are trains every 15 minutes. Capacity has been doubled since a few months ago. Trains that start at Gospel Oak (closest station for Hampstead Heath), passes through Crouch Hill (for Crouch End), improve access for the new WHL, connect onto trains for Southend at Barking and in a couple of years will extend to Barking Riverside, a brand new 'town' on the Thames with 10,800 new homes and the facilities to match.


Another hip-hop nobody


This line is horrible, I wouldn't jump on it even if it was free. The trains consists of two carriages, come every 30 mins. and people board it regardless of if it's already packed. And, you have to fight it out with the EU self-claimed builders from Walthamstow and Leytonstone.

My taxes can happily go to this. But cut 50% off politicians wages whilst your at it.


7,800+ of these issued by 2016 according to the article below, and given that (as already seen in this deal thread) some of these will be drawers around the UK only used on occasional visits to London this very limited concession isn't costing TfL a fortune in lost revenue. The least that TfL could do for those who qualify for it, and of course probably gave BoJo some positive publicity during his mayoral campaign at the time (not a BoJo fan but to be fair to him, in this case, he did seem to make it clear during his 2008 campaign that his planned concession would be for injured rather than all veterans).


I suppose it's just like every other repetitive deal, if you don't know, you don't know


And to go even further it’s not just for veterans who left with a disability attributable to military service - it depends heavily on the type of compensation / pension given. For example I was medically discharged and get a medical pension for injury on tour however as I got a one off payment from AFCS (but also a monthly med pension) and not a GIP im not entitled to this. GIPs are only given to the very very serious injuries and replaced the war pension scheme.


Just to reiterate - this offer (which has been around for years) is not just for Veterans - to qualify you need to be a Veteran who left service with a disability or wound that is attributable (and documented) to military service. Contrary to public perception, the number of Veterans with service related disabilities lurking around in UK is still comparatively small. I served for 22 years and managed to emerge in reasonable good shape - as do the majority of Veterans - and to be able to take advantage of this offer you do need to be Service disabled AND living in London.... So in reality very few of these Veterans Oystercards are issued.

How many more Taxes will people keep paying blindly! The poll tax never got off the ground twice, If you don't pay this rubbish it won't ever get off the ground and they will have to scrap it, but no the blind British public sheep will pay it!!!


It's stupid that a car like this is exempt.


Not that I have any intention of driving into London but my LPG car apparently will cost £12.50 in the ULEZ area but free in the LEZ area. Is that the same for petrol only cars?


Other cities are introducing their own charges for congestion/emissions under 'clean air' schemes. Manchester for example is looking to charge £7.50 in the city centre and surrounding towns. Stoke-On-Trent is set to introduce a £8 minimum fee for the central dual carriage way connecting it's 6 towns... the same road that gets used when they divert traffic from the M6 when there is an accident. There are a few other cities that are set to introduce their own, and it makes you wonder what the true cost would be to travel the country at some point in the future. Probably cheaper just to get on a plane.


Certainly seems a little off. My old Kia sportage 2.0ltr, that's £240 tax a year is showing as free, as is my other car. Two of my old cars are showing as they would have been free too, one being an '97 Astra not even fuel injected.

None, to my knowledge. Stick with the same contactless card and you get the same daily and weekly fare caps like Oyster.


Technology and complexity never make life easier. Usually customer pays for the failures in tfl investment. Today barriers are often left open due to shortage of staff. With mechanical system they either had the machines fixed or guards at barriers. In the oyster or credit based system is a story of economy getting messed up by corrupt leaders, money disappears out of circulation, more computers replace people, more money disappears. Citizens left to absorb costs. You pay for forgetting, you pay for reclaiming in the time taken.


Thank you. Just applied for a bacs refund online.

I have one of these for my autistic son. Great in principle, but no body takes any notice. I have a lanyard with a badge on it that says 'i have autism, please be patient with me'. Used in conjunction works well.


Great idea. My daughter has an invisible disability and although wouldn't as such expect someone to give their seat up for her but if she did get a seat it would mean people would understand why she kept her head down and wasn't being rude by not giving her seat up for someone else


Whilst its easy to judge and see things from the perspective of those looking for a seat, dont forget some people may not stand and offer a seat because they already need it for reasons known to them. Disabled/elderly/infirm/pregnant etc people can already occupy the seats too! ;) Agreed that people could do more to help others in need though, if they are able to!
