Does anyone remember what the actual fares were when "Fares Fair" was

There were two overlapping zones in the central area, but I don't know
where exactly they covered or what the fares were.

I thought I remembered but I saw I'd got the overlap badly wrong when I
looked at G9zdGVycz9zaG9ydD0xJnNraXA9MjkyOCZsaW1pdD00OA==

How did one pay for the journey in 1981 and what cind of ticket did
you get? Magnetic stripe?

IIRC they were yellow with a mag stripe, Either bought from a machine or
from a ticket office.
