Commenting on today’s announcement confirming the introduction of a 'one hour bus ticket', Liberal Democrat London Assembly Member Caroline Pidgeon said:
"The Liberal Democrats have been campaigning for a One Hour Bus Ticket for the best part of a decade in London. I welcome our policy being adopted by London's new mayor and hope that he will go further and also implement our policy for half price travel for journeys on the transport network before 7.30am."
The Liberal Democrats were the first party (here) to suggest the introduction of a one hour bus ticket and have campaigned for this since 2009 (here) when Caroline Pidgeon proposed a motion unanimously supported by Assembly members to introduce the fare, which was blocked by the Mayor. The policy was included in the 2012 (here) and 2016 (here) Mayoral manifesto.
