Local disruptions

Most Tube station ticket machines are only accepting bank cards. You can top up using your contactless and Oyster account, the TfL Oyster and contactless app or an Oyster ticket stop. Ticket machines at all London Overground and DLR stations are still accepting cash.

Bank Station: During escalator works until mid-August the walking route from the District/Circle lines to the Central, Northern and Waterloo & City lines is via street level. You will be directed out of Monument station, along King William Street and back in to Bank station. If you are using contactless or pay as you go, please touch out as you exit Monument and touch back in as you re-enter at Bank, to avoid being overcharged. The walking routes to the DLR and from the Northern line to the District/Circle line platforms are not affected.


Ticket price information

Fares between two stations may vary depending on the direction of travel, time of day and day of the week.

We charge higher fares at the busiest times of the day (usually between 06:30 and 09:30, and between 16:00 and 19:00, Monday to Friday).

When you pay as you go, you must touch your contactless or Oyster card on a yellow reader at the start and end of your journey.

Some journeys are charged via Zone 1 regardless of the route taken.

If your journey avoids Zone 1 and you see a pink card reader when changing trains, touch your contactless or Oyster card on it to pay the right fare.
