Since its launch in March this year, a total of 118,613 books of Carnets have been sold, proving that London Transport’s new initiative for "designer" tickets caters for individual types of passengers.

The cost efficient Carnets is a book of ten single tickets can be used on the Underground anywhere in zone one and are valid for up to 12 months. The ten ticket Carnet gives passengers a saving of £1 on the cost of ten single zone one tickets. Carnets can be purchased at any zone one London Underground station or PASS agent.

Designed to be kept and used at the passengers’ convenience, Carnet is very adaptable to passengers needs and allows ticket users to hop on and off the Tube at a moments notice.

Businesses in London will soon be able to get on board the Tube with Carnet, giving them to employees when they need to go to meetings in zone one. The benefits to employers are numerous. Not only do they save on expensive, time consuming taxi journeys but because of the efficiency and convenience of the Tube, the Carnet is also transferable from one person to another.

A spokesperson from London Transport commented: " The new ticket is an attractive offer for both new and existing passengers, especially tourists and leisure travellers. Its appeal is wide ranging, suiting a foreign visitors planning a few day’s sightseeing around central London, to two working friends out of an impromptu shopping spree during their lunch hour".
