Journey numbers for the Mayor’s flagship Thames cable car fell to just 18,572 last week – one of the lowest levels since the scheme opened in June 2012.
The figures compare to 25,266 for same period last year.
Last week’s figures mean average daily use was 2,653, only slightly higher than the 2,500 Transport for London originally boasted it could carry “per hour in each direction”.
Without the halo of the Olympics the cable car has failed to attract significant levels of ridership and a recent FOI revealed that just 4 passengers use it on a regular basis.
The Mayor and TfL have previously been urged to reduce fares in an attempt to boost passenger numbers, and to reverse a decision to charge Travelcard holders an additional fare to use the cable car.
