London transport costs have been making headlines recently with the news that fares will be rising, then that they won’t be rising by quite as much as first thought, and then that the rise has had to be delayed thanks to some sloppy communication between Boris Johnson and George Osborne.

The latest instalment from Bozzer on transport costs is that the congestion charge looks set to rise by at least 15 percent this summer. This would mean an increase from £10 to £11.50 for the standard daily charge, or from £9 to £10.50 for automatic payments. Next day payments would rise by £2 to £14 and residents will also face a 15 percent increase on their discounted tariff.
