Hi can someone work out the daily cost for this on an oyster card ( all zones for tube)

Bus travel wallington to morden - £0.90
Morden tube to collindale
Collindale to morden
Morden to wallington

Does it cap on £3 or is it more
Ive got to to this daily thing for 6 weeks ( 5 days a week) and i need to know is it cheaper with an oyster card or paying for a monthly pass

Thanks will rep later on

Yeah it caps on £3 me thinks. Worth a check on the official site I reckon.

Generally speaking a monthly travelcard option is going to be the cheapest, if you use pay as you go, and forget to touch in or out you get charged the full daily rate.

You can find out definitively by calling the Oyster Help line and / or National Rail enquiries atc also Transport For London....

Wait, you're both the bus and tube right? That's not going to cap at £3...what zones do those stations cover? AFAIK £3 is the bus pass only, there's another one called a travelcard that covers tube rides as well. Underground also caps at something but I forgot, sorry. :oops:

The cap on oyster for bus, tube and rail for zones 1-5 is £6.50 off peak and £11.30 peak (before 9.30 am) a weekly travelcard is £41.40 and monthly is £159 . So if you're travelling off-peak, oyster daily capped is cheapest, if you're travelling before 9.30 am the monthly travel pass is the cheapest. hope this helps![/COLOR]
