Chancellor must match London Mayor's commitment on fares

3 December 2013
Campaign for Better Transport has responded to the announcement by the Mayor of London that train, tube and bus fares in the Capital will rise by an overall average of 3% in the New Year.

James MacColl, Head of Campaigns, Campaign for Better Transport said

"Boris Johnson's decision to keep the increase in public transport fares to 3% is definitely a step in the right direction, although many Londoners will still see fares rising faster than incomes. The challenge is now for George Osborne to match the Mayor's commitment in this week's Autumn Statement and end the decade of above inflation rail fares."
