Passenger watchdog London TravelWatch has published 10 key policies which it believes will improve the services for public transport users and hopes Mayoral candidates will adopt.
TravelWatch says it is publishing the policies to “help to focus members of the public as they question their representatives on the doorsteps this spring”.
The 10 policy areas are:
Frequent and comprehensive public transport
A fair deal for travellers
Reliable and timely information
Travelling with confidence
A transport network open to all
Enforcing the rules
Walking with pleasure
A single door-to-door service
A road network fit for purpose
A full guide can be found on the TravelWatch website.
TravelWatch Chair Sharon Grant said: “The 10 policies that we are urging mayoral candidates to consider will help to make public transport in London more customer-focused.
“They reflect the challenges experienced by the travelling public who are all too often faced with unclear and inconsistent information, when they deserve a joined up service. Londoners also want frequent and comprehensive public transport which is attractively priced.
“Our proposals have simplicity at their heart but I feel they would make a real difference, especially in Olympic year and during these tough economic times. ”
