Asked Of: 
The Mayor


How will you respond to the resolution passed by the London Assembly in October 2013 calling on you to bring forward a programme of targeted fare reductions including-

       A one-hour bus ticket - allowing bus passengers to change buses within a one hour period

       Early-bird fares - bringing discounted fares for people who travel early in the morning and helping to reduce congestion in the morning peak

       Part-time Travelcards - recognising the increase in the number of part-time workers and bringing their transport costs into line with full-time workers?
