Tom Brake MP is celebrating alongside London Assembly Member Caroline Pidgeon after the announcement that an unlimited number of trips in an hour will be able to be made with the Hopper bus ticket starting from next year.
Carshalton & Wallington MP Tom Brake said:
“Caroline and I have campaigned for bus reform for years, therefore the introduction of a 1-hour bus ticket is incredibly welcome and overdue.
"Switching buses is an inescapable reality for many residents in Carshalton and Wallington. I am happy to see that they will no longer be penalised for this thanks to the 1-hour bus ticket.”
“Further, I support the weekly cap on Oyster that is being introduced in 2018 after years of contactless payment being the only form of payment with a weekly cap.
"Boris Johnson even promised that a cap would be introduced by 2015. This major anomaly should have been addressed many years ago.”
