    PS: If TFL really wanted to reduce overcrowding, then the single best thing they could do is to try and bring forward the opening of Crossrail from sometime in 2021. That will add 10% to London's rail capacity at a stroke. 
    No free lunch, and no free laptop ;)

    Not sure this could happen even if they wanted to. Testing, signing off, some building work to complete.

    Probably because many people who use a 60+ Oyster are still working and need to get on TFL by 9am in order to start work at 9.30am? 
    It's pure tokenism: taking a few twirlies off TFL in the morning peak is not going to enable 2m social distancing on any TFL service that I know of, which is why masks are being (belatedly) made compulsory.
    Face MASKS are not being made compulsory.  Starting next week face COVERINGS will be.

    One thing I don't understand is why these restrictions are only until only 9am in the morning.

    Morning Peak time at TfL has been until 09:30 for years and continues to be for other customers.
    The national standard for ENCTS pass holders is 9.30am but some local authorities allow their use from 9am. In those areas it may also be that only ENCTS passes issued by that authority are valid between 9 and 9.30. Seems like TfL have decided all ENCTS passes, including mine issued in Lancashire, will be valid from 9am.
