But Jon Allen today gave me news that will apparently please people: "who complained about the Oystercard being a rip off if you use pre-pay more than a couple of times in one day".
From the BBC's site we learn that "From 27 February capping on pre-pay cards will be introduced allowing passengers to pay the lowest daily fare once every journey has been assessed. The cap will apply at the appropriate one-day Travelcard or Bus Pass rate.
The London Transport Users' Committee (LTUC) has urged for capping to be introduced for a long time."
Nothing on the LU website at the moment. So read more on the Beeb's.
