In May 2021 you said that TfL would “explore the use of more dynamic fare pricing”. Can you update me on this work and what new dynamic fare pricing, if any, was introduced as part of the 2021 or 2022 fare changes?

I asked Transport for London to explore dynamic fare pricing and it has indicated that it is not technically feasible as things stand, to offer demand-led surge pricing. Peak and off-peak pricing has long been used to encourage customers to change their travel plans, where possible, and is easily understood by customers.
