The move to a cashless tube has not been thought through

Caroline Pidgeon has criticised Transport for London's move to end cash payments across all Tube stations, without a genuine consultation process.

Caroline told the Evening Standard:

“I remain concerned that TfL is still planning to end cash payments across all of its Tube stations.

“The potential of increased fare evasion appears to have not been considered or the difficulties of people being forced to quickly top up their Oyster cards while on the move.

“The real needs of people who don’t have a bank account, including many young people, appear to have been overlooked until far too late in this policy change.

“Consulting groups after having made a decision is not real consultation.”
