New Fares Guide for 2022

Significant changes have been made to the fare scales this year. Firstly, in March the special NR fares from Dartford and Swanley were abolished and incorporated into the standard NR fare scale for the late adopting operators. Secondly, the special fares for Anglia journeys ending at Liverpool Street NR became redundant at the same time. And finally, in May the Elizabeth line opened with the special treatment of the core section between Paddington and Abbey Wood.

As a result of these changes I have produced a new fares guide page, complete with an updated map [Again I have used the Freedom Pass map as the starting point but have made significant changes to reflect the different purpose]. There is a link to the old page to assist anyone looking at the historical fares data.

The most important thing to understand is the difference between the Elizabeth line core section and any other National Rail line (including London Overground and the rest of the Elizabeth line). Whilst it is a National Rail line, the fares charged are Underground/DLR fares. In terms of the late adopting NR lines (eg Southeastern) this means that the mixed mode premium will apply to many of the destinations. The premium won’t apply if there are other ways of making the journey using just NR, for example using Thameslink to Farringdon or London Overground to Whitechapel.

As always, the fare finder will show the actual fare charged for any specific journey.
