2015 London underground, Oyster card Peak hour 時間,相關資料

London 地鐵有一個很合理的制度,高峰時間收貴一點。(或是你可以說,非高峰時間特價吧)

Peak hour: 有兩段時間,對,就是上班下班時間

6:30-09:30

16:00-19:00

以你第一次拍卡為凖*

* Remember, if your journey stretches between two of the periods in the table above, the rate and caps are decided by the time of the first touch in.  Any subsequent touches of any description make no difference to the charge for that journey.

On weekdays your travel updates the Anytime total and, if appropriate, the Off-Peak total as well.  If either total exceeds the cap for the zones travelled in then your charges are capped.  Thus, if you make one journey starting before 0930 you are likely to hit the off-peak cap before the anytime cap.  Bus and tram travel also counts towards the independant daily bus cap, such that after 0930 it will only charge if none of the three caps have been reached.

Note: I am now calling the peak cap “Anytime” because that better describes the way it works.  You are always adding to the anytime total unless you first reach the off-peak cap.

Exceptions

As with all rules there are a number of exceptions.

  1. If you start a journey outside zone 1 between 1600 and 1900 and finish it inside zone 1 then the off-peak fare applies.  (from 2015 this is true for all rail journeys).
  2. All travel between Euston and Watford Junction before 0930 is charged at off-peak fares as is travel the other way between 1600 and 1900.
  3. There are a number of earlier starts to the off-peak cap from stations at the extremeties of the Oyster area.  Touch in after the times given in the following table will count towards the off-peak price cap, but note that the single fare charged will still be the peak fare until after 0930:
