There has been an overwhelmingly positive response to the campaign we launched last week to get Epsom into zone 6. (Epsom Guardian)
Hundreds of people have signed up to the online petition - ONLINE PETITION
Not only will the move make travel to and from London easier and cheaper, but it promises to boost the town’s economy by attracting more shoppers.
The business community has welcomed the initiative with open arms.
Amanda Masters, business development manager at Surrey Chambers of Commerce, said: "Surrey Chambers of Commerce are fully behind the campaign to get Epsom station into zone 6.
"It is supportive of anything that can bring extra business into the town and into the borough."
And the council has also signed up to the campaign.
Chief executive Frances Rutter said: “The council fully supports this initiative.
“It makes it easier for those residents travelling to central London, who at the moment can find themselves buying both Oyster cards and regular tickets and having to hop on and off the train during their journey.”
