Responding to today’s announcement of changes in London’s transport fares, London’s candidate for Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said:
“Once again, millions of Londoners will see their travel costs rise in the new year. Under the current Mayor, fare rises have outstripped wages, leaving Londoners thousands of pounds worse off.
"I'm pleased that the Mayor has accepted Labour's idea of free travel on overground trains for under 11s. This will help families but is a small fig leaf on yet another fares hike.
"I'm particularly worried for Londoners who rely on the buses - they face yet another hike in January.
“As Mayor I’ll stand up for Londoners and freeze all TfL fares for four years and introduce the 'Hopper' ticket, so you can change buses as many times as you need within an hour, but only pay a single fare."
