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

How did one pay for the journey in 1981


almost certainly cash

and what cind of ticket did
you get? Magnetic stripe?


Unfortunately my collection doesn't go back that far

but definitely mag stripe

the question is would that have been a credit card sized ticket or did
they still have Edmondson sized "Yellow" tickets then?

Yellow
