Publicity in the TfL Area

“Touch the pink reader for the right fare” - a slimline (flimsy) leaflet describing what a pink reader is and why it should be used, but only at those stations where pink readers have been installed: Blackhorse Road, Canada Water, Clapham Junction, Gospel Oak, Gunnersbury, Highbury & Islington, Kensington (Olympia), Richmond, Rayners Lane, Stratford, Surrey Quays, West Brompton, Whitechapel, Willesden Junction and Wimbledon. The leaflet is dated October 2013.

“Travel options from North Greenwich” - a slimline multifold leaflet with first & last buses plus a bus route spider map, rail and tube services in inner London, river boat services and a local area map. This is the third one of these in the series, ref: TFL26859.xx.xx and dated September 2013. This leaflet is only available at the Emirates Airline gondola service and the tube station booking hall. Strangely, the bus station enquiry office does not yet stock them.

Continuing Your Journey from Euston - TFL27094.09.13
Route 205 - (24 hour) service removed.

In addition, there are similar leaflets due for 3 other stations, but these have not yet been delivered or displayed.
