It’s official: London’s one-hour Hopper bus fare is now unlimited

The Hopper bus fare has gone unlimited from today, so users can make as many bus and tram journeys as they like within an hour.

The upgraded “hopper fare” allows passengers to make as many changes as possible within 60 minutes for £1.50.

The change means passengers will be able to make unlimited bus and tram journeys, even if travelling on Tube or rail services in between, for the price of one journey.

The mayor said the fare forms part of plans to help encourage more Londoners to ditch cars for public transport, and help improve the capital’s air quality troubles.

Transport for London have estimated that around 13,000 additional passengers will now benefit from the unlimited fare every day.

Liberal Democrat member Caroline Pidgeon said the announcement “should not hide the fact that Sadiq Khan is now overseeing cuts in bus services”.

“London’s new one-hour bus ticket would be far more successful if people were not being forced to wait longer to simply catch a bus,” she added.

Improvements to the Oyster card and contactless system are also set to be rolled out this year, including pay as you go on the Elizabeth Line, weekly capping on Oyster to bring it in line with contactless, and adding the ability to view journey history for contactless pay as you go journeys in the TfL app.
