"People who need to switch buses should not be penalised" - Caroline Pidgeon


After more than a decade of action, Lib Dem London Assembly member Caroline Pidgeon's campaign to secure a "one hour bus ticket" for Londoners has finally been rewarded, with news that an unlimited number of trips will finally be allowed from next year.

Commenting on today’s announcement Caroline said: "For a decade I have campaigned for a 1-hour bus ticket so the introduction at long last of this policy is incredibly welcome.

"People who need to switch buses simply to get from one place to another should not be penalised.   The 1-hour bus ticket is just what London needs.”

Also reacting to news of the introduction of a weekly cap on Oyster sometime in 2018, Caroline Pidgeon said:

“It is grossly unfair that there is a weekly cap on contactless payment but not on Oyster.   Boris Johnson even promised that a cap would be introduced by 2015.  This major anomaly should have been addressed many years ago.”
