Constituents across Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner have long benefitted from access to the travelcard scheme on TfL services. Over 12 million day travelcards were sold last year as travel continues to recover from the impact of the pandemic. These travelcards offer the friends and families of my constituents to make the most of their trip to London and to explore all corners of our city.
The Mayor had plans to abolish these travelcards and has only just decided to U-turn on this decision. While I am glad that the Mayor has had a change of heart, I am puzzled why it got to this point. In Parliament, I raised my concerns with the Secretary of State for Transport in the hopes that he might shed some light on the series of events.
