Underground travellers already facing above-average fare increases in the new year will also have to put up with huge hikes in Tube station car parking charges.
From January 5, weekday parking fees will rise an average 18.73% - going up from £4.27 to £5.07.
Saturday charges will rise from an average of £1.60 to £2.26, with Sunday tariffs increasing from an average of £1.12 to £1.66.Transport for London said the increases were the first for more than two years and would "bring the prices more into line with other local car parks".
