Thank you for visiting the 'Save travel concessions for older Londoners' campaign page. The e-action has now closed. See below for an important update.
UPDATE (1st November 2020)
‼️ CAMPAIGN WIN ‼️
The Older Persons' Freedom Pass and 60+ Oyster card are safe for now. Thank You to the thousands of Londoners that stood up for affordable travel.
We now need to come together to ensure the long-term future of older Londoners travel concessions. We have always been clear that travel concessions are not a luxury but a lifeline.
We are disappointed that the use of the Freedom Pass and 60+ Oyster card for essential journeys before 9am on weekday mornings remains in place.
The new TFL funding deal covers the national lockdown but also the months that follow. Older Londoners have been travelling responsibly and with with extreme caution. That will continue and is something we fully support.
This is a difficult time for all generations and we know many older Londoners will be very anxious. We urge all Londoners to look our for each other.
We are planning the next stage of the campaign. For updates please visit https://bit.ly/EssentialButNotAffordable
