London Liberal Youth join Fairer Fares campaign

Young Campaigner Ross Barlow & GLA List Candidates Stephen Knight & Munira Wilson out surveying commuters

This morning Brian Paddick & London Liberal Democrats launched our Fairer Fares campaign in train & tube stations across London, with members of London Liberal Youth getting involved alongside GLA candidates & Team London campaigners.

Our Mayoral Candidate Brian Paddick is calling for ‘early bird’ fares for those who commute before the morning rush hour and part-time travel cards for those who don’t travel as often.

He attacked Ken Livingstone’s plans to cut fares as unaffordable, but Brian claims ‘It’s time to take a new approach and these ideas would make travelling more affordable, flexible and would reduce some peak time overcrowding.’
