Decision Maker Response
Sir Peter Hendy CBE’s response
Sep 16, 2014 — Thank you for your emails about the petition calling for the re-zoning of Staines and Ashford (Surrey) stations as zone 6.
While I fully appreciate the desire of local users to see the two stations re-zoned as zone 6, this is something South West Trains, the Train Operating Company responsible for both stations, and the Department for Transport (DfT) would need to consider. As noted in the petition, both these stations are not currently part of the Travelcard zones and Oyster is not valid for use there. I will therefore let Tim Shoveller, Managing Director of South West Trains, respond to this request in more detail.
Sir Peter Hendy CBE
