Stagecoach settles claim over London zone boundary train tickets

The Competition Appeal Tribunal has approved a £25m settlement of a class action which alleged that South West Trains abused its dominant position by not making tickets from London fare zone boundaries sufficiently available for purchase, meaning many Travelcard holders were charged twice for part of their journey. The case was brought by class representative Justin Gutmann, represented by law firm Charles Lyndon Ltd and financed by Woodsford Litigation Funding. A similar claim against current South Western Railway operator First MTR South Western Trains Ltd continues.
