To find out about delays on all of the lines, go to the TfL website and click ‘Status Updates’. If there are any problems on your proposed line of travel, the website can tell you exactly whereabouts the problem is and help you re-plan your journey.

What is an Oyster card? Is it cheaper than paying for individual tickets?

Oyster is a smart card which you can use to pay for all of your travel including bus, tram,tube, overground and more. You can top it up with pay as you go credit or set up auto top up so that you never run out of credit. You can also add student discount and other concessions.

How much is the Congestion Charge? Where does it apply to?

The Congestion Charge is £11.50 daily charge for driving a vehicle within the charging zone between 7am and 6pm Monday-Friday. The Congestion Charge applies throughout most of central London from Westminster to Finsbury, Mayfair to Spitalfields. A full map is available on the TfL website.

Don’t panic, you can pass the card on to a member of family or a friend. If this is not an alternative, you can apply for a refund by posting your card to the TfL head office.

About Transport for London

TfL was created back in 2000 as part of the Greater London Authority. Although it is most known for the London Underground, TfL did not take responsibility for that part of the network until 2003. The body is controlled by a board whose members are chosen and appointed by the Mayor of London. It is officially a branch of the government which governs transport throughout London, including cycling and bus transport. After the July bombings in 2005, the Transport for London staff were recognised for their efforts in helping victims and re-establishing a transport system so soon after the horrific events.
In 2008, alcohol was banned on all public transport by the Transport of London. This was received very well and saw an almost 20% decrease in crime in public transport in the following years. The Transport for London is constantly committed to the safety of the public on all transport systems and aim to make everyone feel safe on all lines. It was reported in 2010 that 90% of sexual assault cases on London transport goes unreported. The TfL want to address this, and urge victims to come forward in a bit to prevent future attacks.

The Head Office can be found in Windsor House in the City of Westminster. It also has a separate office for surface transport.
