Mayor needs to concentrate on tackling overcrowding

Caroline Pidgeon, Liberal Democrat London Assembly Member, commenting on the Mayor’s fare announcement for next year, said

“Sadiq Khan’s manifesto specifically said that Londoners won’t pay a penny more for their travel in 2020 than they do today. There were no ifs, or buts, in that statement.”

“However much the Mayor attempts to spin the issue his announcement today confirms that many Londoners will see their travelcards and their PAYG caps on travelcards increase next year.

“Instead of boasting about his fare announcement the Mayor should now be concentrating on tackling the chronic problem of overcrowding. Introducing half price travel for TfL rail journeys that start before 7.30am would help many low paid workers but also play a critical role in reducing overcrowding.”
