Caught up in the tube strikes? Claim your goodwill voucher
There's a lot of love felt by BW readers for the tube drivers who fought for their right to an unjustifiable pay rise last week. Yet Transport for London is siding with the thousands of commuters who spent hours trying to reach work! Outrageous.
If last Wednesday and Thursday's strikes caused you no end of strife, then good news! TfL are offering goodwill payment vouchers by way of an apology to customers for having to spend two days titting about on buses and bicycles:
If you hold a 7 Day or longer period Travelcard on Oyster purchased from a Transport for London outlet, and your normal tube journey of 10th and 11th of June was severely disrupted you can apply for a goodwill payment voucher which can be used for future travel. You do not need to wait until your current ticket has expired before submitting your claim.
All other tickets - those valid for less than seven days or customers buying tickets on the fly won't receive vouchers since notice of the strikes was given. To claim your voucher, fill in the form on the TfL website.
