Good ol' Wikipedia

Wikipedia gets a lot of knocking, mainly from those with a vested interest in selling information, but there are times when it hits the spot, synthesizing information from various sources into precisely what you need.

A simple question, I thought. I have a London Travelcard, bought primarily for rail use, but I wanted to check its zonal validity on the buses, which I knew was different from the rail/tube/DLR arrangements. After several minutes of frustratingly unproductive googling, I came upon a Wikipedia page providing precisely the information I required.

Of course caution is required, but Wikipedia is definitely one of the Web's killer apps.
