Confusion over rail fares

Last year Boris Johnson raised our tube and bus fares by an inflation busting 6%. Some travellers even faced a rise of 11%! Now it s a year later and Boris is dithering. It has already been announced that regulated train fares will actually be cut next

Last year Boris Johnson raised our tube and bus fares by an inflation busting 6%. Some travellers even faced a rise of 11%!

Now it's a year later and Boris is dithering.

It has already been announced that regulated train fares will actually be cut next year.

Yet in London we have no idea what the Mayor is planning for bus, Tube and tram fares. Hard-up Londoners need to know how much they will have to pay to travel next year so they can budget for this.

It is about time Boris Johnson came clean. Given the rate of inflation, he should freeze or reduce fares. If he chooses not to, Londoners will want, and deserve, an explanation.
