Question

Will the Mayor explain why the discount offered to English UK member schools in 2015, and now again in 2016, to mitigate the impact of the loss of the Group Day Ticket, and the high cost of the replacement off-peak Group Day Travelcard, is not being offered to all groups?

Answered By:

Please see my answer to MQ 2015 /3920.

Most English UK affiliates are relatively small, independent companies who purchase large numbers of group tickets each year for young visitors from overseas attending language schools and short courses in London.

TfL believes that phasing in the new prices incrementally for these companies is a fair and reasonable way to minimise any potential impact of the new prices on their businesses.
