Campaign for Better Transport has welcomed to the announcement that part-time season tickets will be available on London transport from January 2015.
Stephen Joseph, Chief Executive, Campaign for Better Transport said
"The Mayor's plan for part time season tickets makes a lot of sense and national Government should be looking to roll it out more widely. Giving more of the country's eight million part time workers access to cheaper, more flexible, train and bus tickets would help ease the cost of living and support the economy."
1. The London Mayor has announced that part time season tickets will be introduced from January 2015.
2. In September, Government announced that it would introduce a trial for part time season tickets on a South East commuter route during 2014. No further details of the trial have yet been announced.
3. Figures from the Office of National Statistics show over 8 million people now work part time. This number has increased by nearly 1 million in the last 10 years.
