There’s lots of issues in this thread so I’ll try and cover them as they arise.
First caps. Zone 1-2 with railcard is £7.70 all day and £5.10 if all travel is after 0930. Zone 1-3 is £9.00 all day and £5.95 if all travel is after 0930. I’m not sure how you can get £9.40, but if you copy all the journey history for that day I should be able to explain. Hornsey is in zone 3 whereas Finsbury Park is in zone 2 and it doesn’t matter where you use buses.
Barking is in zone 4 so if alternative routes use that station they would charge more. This is why City Airport to Crouch Hill is higher because the default route is via Barking (zones 3-4) whereas the other routes are only zone 3. The fare finder on this site displays the zones covered by each fare for just this reason.
So, you can’t use via Barking on your Crouch Hill to Whitechapel journey, but you can use via Highbury & Islington and Stratford if you start from Turnpike Lane (or indeed Hornsey). You need to touch pink readers at both change points.
Hope this helps.
