Bus passengers will be able to make as many journeys as they like within an hour for just £1.50 next year.
The extension to the hopper fare, which currently allows two journeys to be made for the price of one as long as they are within an hour of each other, has been announced by mayor of London Sadiq Khan.
The upgrade will also allow passengers to make unlimited bus and tram journeys even if they travel on Tube or rail services in between ‘hops’.
Mr Khan also announced that weekly capping, currently only available for contactless users, will be introduced on Oyster cards at some point during 2018.
All pay as you go fares, including Tube, DLR, Emirates Air Line, Santander Cycles and rail services, will be frozen for another year.
There will be no change to discounted or free travel concessions for those who are currently eligible, including children, apprentices and those over 60.
