From the press release…
- Six-month deal means £1.8 billion of Government grant and borrowing made available on current projections to Transport for London (TfL) to keep services running until March 2021
- Mayor rejects government plans for huge extension of the Congestion Charge zone, scrapping free travel for older and younger Londoners and increasing TfL fares by more than previously agreed
- Transport for London to make £160m of savings this financial year, and City Hall will need to raise additional income to protect concessions for older and younger Londoners for future years – if the Mayor wants to continue these
- Mayor says deal is ‘not ideal’ but adds that he fought hard against the Government’s determination to punish London
