This paper briefly describes the methods used by London transport for the calculation of its variety of complex fare scales which are based on passenger miles. London transport has two charging zones for graduated fares, one for journeys in Central London and one for the suburbs, both with a reduced maximum fare in the off peak. There are three types of flat fare routes - Central London red arrow services, certain suburban services, and a small number of minibus services. More than 16% of passenger journeys are made with system passes of about a dozen varieties, all valid for different periods and for different types of travel. The methods of computing the passenger mileage figures for each main type of fare or payment structure are summarised and discussed under the headings of graduated fare routes, flat fare routes, period tickets purchased "off-bus", and tickets for free travel issued by local authorities. /TRRL/
