Fair Fares - Sittingbourne

I was out campaigning at Sittingbourne station this morning getting petition signatures for the Fair Fares campaign run by Better Transport campaigning for:
  • Affordable public transport is vital – don’t raise train fares by another 28%
  • Don’t price people off the train and out of work
  • Listen to the voices of passengers – not just train companies – when you review your fare policy
  • Reconsider your decision to raise fares 3% above inflation now that inflation is far higher than expected
  • Keep your promise to make fares fair
Sittingbourne MP, Gordon Henderson, joined us. Happy to campaign alongside members of other parties but I wonder just how Tories can reconcile their anti-public transport policies with this campaign.
