The request was successful.

Dear Transport for London,

Hello.

Can you please provide me with a history of how much the cash single fares have cost on TFL buses over the years and how much the oyster and contactless single fares have cost on TFL buses over the years. I would like information for each year from 1990 to 2018. I believe the fares normally change from 1/1/xxxx and stay the same until 31/12/xxxx so you can just tell me how much they cost each year (although please let me know if there were any exceptions to this and the fares changed at a different time of the year). This information is for my own personal research in to bus fares so would be very useful to know.

Many thanks.

Yours faithfully,

William Taylor
