Barnet Labour has welcomed the Mayor of London’s trial of reduced transport fares on Fridays.

Pay as you go riders will pay off-peak fares all day on Fridays until 31st May under the scheme, which aims to tackle the significant decrease in tube journeys on Fridays following the Covid-19 pandemic.

Barnet Labour’s cabinet member for environment and climate change, Alan Schneiderman said: “We want to encourage our residents to use public transport and so central London to be accessible for our residents and so this trial from the Mayor is very welcome. We hope it goes well.”
