AMs says that although TfL has identified £117m of savings over the next 2 years, the organisation has yet to work out how it can fund the policy.
After a bit of chasing I finally received a response from Transport for London and City Hall to my request for the “emails, briefing documents and other paperwork between TfL and City Hall” relating to Sadiq’s fares freeze.
When Sadiq announced his fares freeze he failed to publish the advice which he’d relied on and is now failing to deliver on his pledge “to lead the most transparent, engaged and accessible administration London has ever seen”.
During the campaign to succeed Boris Johnson as mayor, Mr Khan promised that Londoners would pay the same fare in 2020, when he’ll be up for re-election, as they did at the start of his mayoralty.
Tory mayoral hopeful Zac Goldsmith says rival Sadiq Khan must “front up to voters” and explain how he’ll pay for a four year fares freeze which Transport for London says would cost £1.5bn more than the Labour candidate claims.
