Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

55Interpretation of the penalty fares provisions

(1)Section 54 of this Act applies to any bus or train service provided by London Regional Transport or any subsidiary of theirs or by any other person in pursuance of any agreement entered into by London Regional Transport by virtue of section 3(2) of this Act which provides that that section is to apply to services provided in pursuance of that agreement.

(2)In this section and the three next following sections " the penalty fares provisions " means section 54, this section and the two next following sections.

(3)In the penalty fares provisions—

  • " authorised person " means a person authorised by the person providing the service in question ;

  • " authority to travel" means any ticket (other than a fare ticket), permit, voucher or other document authorising the person to whom it is issued to travel on any bus or train service to which section 54 applies, whether or not subject to any terms, limitations or conditions as to its use ;

  • " bus journey " means a journey on a bus service to which that section applies;

  • " bus service " has the meaning given by section 43(7) of this Act;

  • "deferred fare authority" means an authority to travel subject to a condition requiring payment of the fare applicable in the case of the person using that authority for the whole or any part of any journey on which it is used at the conclusion of that journey or otherwise as provided by any terms applicable to its use (whether or not it is also subject to any other terms, limitations or conditions);

  • "deferred fare" means the fare payable for a journey authorised by a deferred fare authority;

  • " fare ticket " means a ticket showing payment of a fare for travelling on a bus or train journey and authorising the person to whom it is issued to travel on any such journey for the distance covered by that fare, whether or not subject to any terms, limitations or conditions as to its use:

  • "train journey" means a journey on a train service to which section 54 of this Act applies ; and

  • " train service " means a service for the carriage of passengers by rail.

(4)References in the penalty fares provisions to the fare properly payable for a person's journey on any bus or train service to which section 54 applies are references to the fare so payable excluding any deferred fare for the journey; that is to say, the fare payable by a person of the category to which he belongs for travelling on that service for the whole of the distance travelled on that journey, or for such part of the distance so travelled as is not covered by any deferred fare authority or other valid authority to travel that applies to his journey on the occasion in question. This subsection applies in relation to references in those provisions to the fare properly payable for part of a person's journey as it applies to references to the fare properly payable for a person's journey.

(5)References in those provisions to any necessary fare ticket for a person's journey on any such bus or train service are references to a fare ticket required for his journey on the occasion in question which—

(a)applies to his journey on that occasion ; and

(b)shows payment of the fare properly payable for that journey.

(6)For the purposes of those provisions, no fare is properly payable for a bus journey and no fare ticket is required for a bus or train journey if the person travelling on that journey has a deferred fare authority or other valid authority to travel that applies to the whole of his journey on the occasion in question.
