Mapping Table - London Fare Zones to Postcode

Dave Potter made this Freedom of Information request to Transport for London

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

Transport for London did not have the information requested.

Dear Transport for London,

In .csv or .xlsx format, please provide a file of London Fare Zones (1-6) mapped to Postcodes or Postcode Sectors.

Failing this, please provide in .csv or .xlsx format a file of London Fare Zones (1-6) mapped to Local Authority Name AND Local Authority Ward Name.

An example would be

Postcode ------Local Authority-------Local Authority Ward------------------London Travel Zone
NW1 8DD-------Camden---------------Camden Town with Primrose Hill---[Specified from 1-6]

Yours faithfully,

Dave Potter

The zone is a characteristic of the station, surely. It does not make sense to talk about a postcode halfway between two stations in different zones (such as Southgate and Oakwood) to a zone, as it depends which station you walk (or get the bus) to. It would have made more sense when buses themselves used zones.

Even if it did make sense, there is no reason why TfL zones (designed on the basis of public transport use) should match collections of postcodes (designed for Royal Mail's operational convenience) or local authority wards.

Dear Mr Potter

 

TfL Ref: FOI-4720-1718

 

Thank you for your email received by us on 28 February 2018 asking for
information about London Fare Zones to Postcode.

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act  and our information access policy. 

 

Unfortunately TfL do not hold the information you have requested. The
Travelcard zones are not split by Local Authority or ward and so we do not
hold the document you have requested.

 

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to
appeal.

 

Yours sincerely
