Oystercard Capping

A reason for the Oystercard not to be shoved up your a**ehole?????

I'm afraid I know close to nothing about Oystercards as I don't have one, but I've not heard wonderful things about them and after
Anthony Smith's rant yesterday in the comments the non prepay ones don't sound like the greatest things since sliced bread.

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.
