Answered By: 
The Mayor

I would be delighted to implement the Labour proposal of free bus travel for under 25s when this becomes national policy. Investing to provide free bus travel will greatly help young people access opportunities at this critical stage in their working and educational lives. It will also lower car use, cut congestion, improve air quality and reduce generational inequality.
