Online Local Policy Forum Part Two: PUBLIC TRANSPORT


PUBLIC TRANSPORT:

The Labour Government has modernised the rail system after decades of Tory neglect and introduced free bus fares for pensioners. Now we want North Yorkshire County Council (under Tory control) to subsidise rail fares so that Craven commuters pay lower fares to Keighley, Leeds & Bradford- as are available now in West Yorkshire.

This would reduce pollution, save money for passengers,help tourism and reduce road traffic.
