Commuters are getting cut price travel to work on the DLR with the re-zoning of three stations on the network.

The stations are being shunted from Zone 3 into Zone 2 in the New Year.

The switch means 100,000 passengers using West Ham, Canning Town and Stratford International get a cut in the cost of tickets into central London of up to £20 every month. Travelcards costing £144.80 would go down to £123.30.

The move by TfL, which puts those passengers in the same zone as commuters from Poplar, Limehouse, Shadwell and the Isle of Dogs, is part of a wider plan to promote business and the economy in east London, announced this week by London Mayor Boris Johnson.

But fares are going up anyway in January, so savings might not be as much.
