Snipe London report:

Just four regular commuters are now using the Emirates Air Line cable car between Greenwich Peninsula and the Royal Docks, down from 16 last autumn, new figures released to The Scoop reveal.

Only four Oyster card holders used mayor Boris Johnson’s £60m link more than five times in the week ending 19 October, triggering a regular users’ discount.

The figures also detail a sharp drop in usage compared with the same week last year, with just 6,266 trips made on Sunday 19 October, the week’s busiest day – compared with over 16,180 on the equivalent Sunday in 2012.
