London is changing the way it charges for travel at 8 East London stations, aiming to save residents money depending on the direction that they travel. But how will switching London tube zones help save passengers money?

    How it works

    All 8 stations in Zone 2/3 will be treated as Zone 2 or Zone 3 depending on where the traveller is going to, with the cheapest option always being selected. For example, if travelling from West Ham on the Metropolitan line to Liverpool Street (Zone 1) it’ll charge for a Zone 2 > Zone 1 price. However if travelling from West Ham on the District Line to Upminster (Zone 6), it charges for a Zone 3 > 6 journey.


    We’ve made 8 maps that highlight every location within A 10-minute walk from these newly rezoned London stations. At TravelTime, we think searching for locations should be done in minutes, not miles. If you’d like to add a time-based search to a website get in touch below. It’s easy to implement, and proven to deliver 3x more conversions than miles radius based searching.
