Bus fares on Tyneside

Chi: “People on Tyneside are facing Cost O fLiving Crisis bus fare rises & reduced services. I asked Government the question I have asked many times before: when can we expect to see our bus fares ‘levelled down’ to London rates – £1.65 to cross the entire metropolitan area (+30 miles!)”

(Newcastle upon Tyne Central) (Lab)

As the Prime Minister apparently contemplates a third term, we on Tyneside are left facing bus fare rises and reduced services. I will ask the question I have asked many times before but have still to receive an answer to:  when can we on Tyneside expect to see our bus fares levelled down to those in London, at £1.65 to cross the entire metropolitan area?
