It’s the end of December time for me to renew my zones 1 – 5 travel card. Firstly ouch I don’t like seeing how much I pay in one go, even if work do give me an interest free loan to help.
What I did like though was no more of this you must tell us where you want to pick up your ticket and it will be ready tomorrow, but a much simpler make a journey and you’ll pick it up on your way. Not only no having to chose location, but also that will be ready to happen in 30 minutes.
I might be on the train, but as I’ve got a season ticket I can never be arsed to queue for the reader on the over bridge exit at Charing Cross so never touch in at the start of my trip to save on incomplete journeys.
As long as they don’t make touching in and out compulsory for season ticket holders I’ll stay a happy and efficient bunny.
Of course buying my ticket just before a fare increase means I end up paying the 2017 fares for most of 2018.
