London’s Mayor and part-time season tickets

Liberal Democrats on the London Assembly have challenged Boris to introduce part-time travelcard covering all forms of transport across the capital, following Transport Minister Norman Baker’s annoucement that a trial of the part-time tickets will soon start on a busy London commuter line.

Boris said in March that he was considering such a scheme.

Lots of people work part-time, but the current weekly and monthly travelcards are rigidly based around a conventional five day week. A part-time travelcard would make travel more affordable for people who work part-time as well as encouraging more flexible working and travel times.
