Chris Grayling met with Transport Minister Norman Baker this week to discuss extending Zone 6 to include Epsom station.  Mr Baker was sympathetic to the issue raised, and has agreed to write to the Train Companies giving them permission to enter into detailed discussions about the possibility of moving Epsom into Zone 6. Nothing can happen without their agreement, but since both Southern and South West Trains have indicated to Mr Grayling that they are not opposed to the principle, he is hopeful that they will look sympathetically at the possibility. A lot will depend on the cost of the change, but this is a good start.
