In 2014 Stratford Station was re-zoned from Zone 3 to 2/3 to avoid passengers paying extra. If the same logic was applied to the whole of south London (3 miles of travel as a minimum per zone) most stations would move in a zone. This would save south London commuters into central London money whilst also protecting/reducing the fares of those travelling in from the City.
Moving Croydon’s stations into a different zone makes economic sense for our community – incentivising companies to relocate and invest in our town, boosting a change in perceptions and helping cut the cost of living for so many. But I can’t do it without your help. So join my campaign to cut your cost of living, increase investment in our local community, and help make a Croydon a place we can all be proud of.
