Caroline Pidgeon has called for Transport for London to take firmer action against fare dodging, where enforcement currently remains weaker than it was before 2020.

Caroline said:

"While of course it is welcome news prosecutions for fare evasions are up on last year, it is deeply disappointing they still remain below the levels for 2019/20, especially with lower journeys now than before the pandemic.

“Honest commuters end up paying for fare evasion, which costs TfL huge amounts in lost revenue. We need to see more decisive action against those who are playing the system.”
