The Government and TfL have agreed, as part of a bailout deal, that free travel on public transport from under-18s will be stopped.
By stopping free travel for under-18s across London, our young people will see a disastrous impact on their independence, as well as their opportunities for education and employment, as well as cultural and sporting opportunities.
As we rebuild our city after the coronavirus lockdown, our resources should be focused on our young people, whose prospects have taken a huge hit.
We, the undersigned, call on the Government to reconsider their agreement with TfL and continue free public transport for under-18s.
We will include your name and address when submitting the petition to the Department for Transport.
