On the past weekend I made 3 journeys on the line and got charged £1.70 (National Railcard) again each as a result, between Kilburn High Road and Dalston Kingsland / Hackney Central.
I believe there is a large number of passengers overcharged as a result. I have sent an FOI request to TfL asking for the number of passengers travelling between Kensal Green – South Hampstead and Highbury & Islington – Stratford using PAYG or a non-zone 1 Travelcard, on
– days when the direct train runs
– other days, counting separately the passengers who touch and doesn’t touch the pink reader at Willesden Juinction.
