Richard Tracey: Integrate Oyster and extend rush hour service to capitalise on 6K river journey success
Richard Tracey, London Assembly Member for Merton and Wandsworth, has welcomed the initial success of the new Thames Clipper river service running between Putney and Blackfriars, but urges TfL and Thames Clipper to capitalise on its growing popularity. Over 6,000 journeys have been made during rush hour in the first month of operation, with a steady increase week on week.
Richard Tracey said: "It is fantastic that the first month of the new service has seen over 6,000 journeys being made during peak times. We now need to build on this by integrating Oyster onto the Clipper service so passengers receive a discount. I would also like to see the rush hour service extended to longer times. The planned new pier at Battersea and the increasing number of new apartments will mean there is a ready market for this mode of transport."
