Since June 2020, older Londoners have not been able to use their Older Persons’ Freedom Pass or their 60+ Oyster card before 9am on weekday mornings. This was meant to be a temporary suspension to ease crowding on public transport during the height of the pandemic.
Age UK London believe the suspension penalises older Londoners with no choice about when and how they travel. Some of the poorest older Londoners are among those hardest hit.
Affordable transport is a lifeline. London has the highest level of pensioner poverty in the country. Taking travel concessions away from older Londoners will drive up poverty and exacerbate the capital’s social isolation crisis.
Support our campaign by sending a message to the Deputy Mayor for Transport, Seb Dance, to call on him and Transport for London to end the morning suspension.
IMPORTANT: Please write your name at the end of the email. We also recommend that you add into your email up to two sentences describing how you have been affected by the suspension.
Thank you for your support.
