Response to Easier Fares for All consultation

18 February 2019 Responding to the publication of the Rail Delivery Group's Easier Fares for All consultation, Janet Cooke, Chief Executive of London TravelWatch said:

"The results of the consultation will not come as a surprise to many who use the rail system in and around London. They highlight the overwhelming appetite for changes to the rail fares system and reinforce the feedback we’ve been getting from passengers over many years.

We support the ‘best fare guarantee’. But ‘smart’ really must mean ‘smart’ – it is essential that a smartcard can be used on all services regardless of the operator."
