Labour’s candidate for the 2012 Mayoral elections Ken Livingstone pledges to cut fares by 5%

I welcome the pledge from the Labour Party’s candidate for the 2012 London Mayoral election Ken Livingstone to reduce fares by 5% in Autumn 2012 if elected in May next year.

People in Dudden Hill Ward are telling me all the time about their dissatisfaction with the tube service increasing whilst at the same time, fares are also increasing.

Details of Ken’s policy can be found here LINK

The cost of transport has a major impact on the income that ordinary workers take home as travel costs do take quite a chunk out of people’s wage earnings. This is exactly what we need to help people get on and Ken’s pledge is very welcome.
