Commenting on figures showing that usage of the Thames cable car has halved compared to a year ago, Caroline Pidgeon said:
"After 16 months of operating the latest passenger figures for the cable car speak for themselves. It is increasingly clear that the longer it is in existence the fewer people want to use it as it is currently run.
"The Mayor of London, who is chair of Transport for London, should now be honest with Londoners and decide what its future should be.
"If the cable car is to have any success in the long term it should either be run and operated as a privately run tourist attraction, or instead operated as an integral form of public transport, where people with a Travelcard or a relevant pass can use it for free."
