My point was almost all networks in the world, when travelling short distances on a single fare would work out more expensive than the Concorde. What makes London so different.

And the prices are not exactly that much more expensive when using Oyster Cards against many other networks. And let's be honest. You have to be pretty stupid to not get an Oyster card and spend £4 instead of £1.50, or very wealthy and not care about the extra cost.
