Will the Air Line be integrated into the regular payment scheme of TfL, accepting Travelcards and what else?

There's a travelcard / oyster discount of 25%, but even if it was a straight zone 3 fare, then regular ridership wouldn't increase as it's useless for all but a handful of people going direct from one end to the other. And it only has use as the walk at North Greenwich is fairly long.

It's a tourist attraction, not viable transport, but that you can use Oyster card to pay is a great thing.

Plus, as 'views of London' attractions go, it's dirt cheap compared with the competitors. Even a return journey without the discount is much cheaper than the Eye, or a trip up the Shard.

Canada Water station was renamed as Buxton Water station during yesterday's 2015 London Marathon, in relation of Nestle's marathon sponsorship:

Heathrow's Terminal 5 was briefly 'renamed' for the release of the Samsung Galaxy S5 last year. This station advertising ploy was relatively minor in comparison:

That's just a one-day thing. No stations were permanently renamed in Ldn.

Disused Tube station to be leased
28 Apr 2015



UK: Transport for London has announced that it will lease part of a disused Underground station to businesses ‘who have the ability to use the space to create something exceptional and establish the next chapter in the station’s history’.

TfL announced on April 28 that it is seeking businesses ‘to transform Down Street station into a commercially viable business’. The proceeds from the move will form part of the authority’s plans to generate £3·4bn in non-fare revenue for capital projects

Northern Line fleet upgrade complete
30 Apr 2015



UK: Alstom has completed the modernisation of London Underground’s Northern Line train fleet.

The two-year mid-life refurbishment programme saw the interior and exterior renovation of 106 six-car trains, of which 96 are required for peak services.

The work took place at the Morden and Golders Green depots, which are managed by Alstom. It included reconfiguring seating to create wheelchair spaces and upgrading the passenger information system. According to Alstom, about 35 000 components were replaced on each train, and a total of 11 km of lino replaced, 15 688 windows polished to remove graffiti, and 27 500 seat backs changed

Next generation of Docklands Light Railway trains planned
08 May 2015



UK: Transport for London’s Docklands Light Railway Ltd subsidiary has issued a periodic indicative notice to begin industry consultation on a possible new generation of rolling stock for the automated light metro. The aim of the New Train would be to reduce journey times, improve passenger ambience and reduce whole-life costs.

TfL is aiming to start a ‘technical dialogue’ with established rolling stock manufacturers to determine what is currently available or being developed, and what would be the optimum technical solution to meet its requirements

So instead of trains of 3 cars each being articulated in one place and having front/back facing seating the DLR might be getting 1 car trains with (at least?) 5 articulations* and longitudinal seating? Oh, and 50% more doors per side (either more doors or wider doors).
Sounds like the DLR is going to get a huge capacity boost.

*I'm assuming having fewer total articulations than today just wouldn't work when keeping the trains the same length.
