Continuing the farce that is the provision of free travel around London for volunteers, officials and competitors, I keep hearing about extensions to the validity of the zones 1-6 travelcard that most people have. Before it’s too late, this post will attempt to keep track of those that I can verify.
- Zones 7-9 (just show the card to staff and/or buy a paper ticket to the first zone 9 station)
- St Pancras International to Stratford International (just show the card to gateline staff)
- Esher (show the card to staff and/or buy a paper ticket to Esher)
Please feel free to post any other relaxations that you know about and/or have used. I will try to verify exceptional ones.
In all cases above, card means both the Olympic family Oyster and your games accreditation.
