Siobhan Benita and the London Liberal Democrats are calling on the Government and Transport for London to restore free bus travel for under 18s.
In the recent financial bailout deal between the Conservative Government and Labour Mayor of London, Transport for London removed this concession for young people.
Many young Londoners need free travel to attend school in a safe and environmentally responsible way. Removing the free bus pass will be a disaster for them and their families.
We are calling on the Government and Transport for London to recognise the impact of this decision and reinstate free travel for under 18s as a matter of urgency.
With young Londoners returning to school and many of them relying on free travel to get there, we have no time to lose.
