Campaign calling for ‘fair fares’ on the Metro

We are campaigning against the unfair effects of zonal charging on the Metro and want to alert readers to plans to extend this system to the bus network.

Such fares heavily penalise passengers who make short journeys across zone boundaries, often paying more to travel a few stops than others travelling several stops in one zone.

Such a system hammers passengers merely for being unlucky enough to live near a zone boundary: an arbitrary line on a map.

We would urge readers likely to be affected by this change to support our campaign for fairer fares at

Many thanks.
