London Assembly member and Tory transport spokesman Roger Evans has a good piece on ConservativeHome today looking at fare evasion and bus crime on London’s buses.
Apparently he has also been having a barney with the Mayor about bus fares. The Mayor is talking rubbish. Average bus fares were 56.4p last year. His figures. Evans is right this includes free fares, travelcards, etc. The Mayor is trying to spin a story about fares that is a fabrication.
The Advertising Standards Authority think he is untruthful too.
