The funding forecasts that passenger demand will remain at around 65% of the pre-coronavirus level until next March. This is higher than the passenger assumptions in TfL`s revised budget, published in July 2020 and which forecasts a funding gap of around £2 billion in the second half of 2020/21. – abolition of evening rates; – extension of Zone 1 to Canary Wharf and Camden Town; – Merge zones 2 to 6 into a single zone, stop paying additional fees if you switch from a local train service to a “tube” service at zone 1 stations like Charing Cross, Waterloo and Victoria. The first trip you make in (or out of) Zone 1 should be included to match TfL Rail and London Overground. – Free movement for children – free movement for the unemployed Andy Byford, London Transport Commissioner, said: “The achievement of this agreement with the government allows us to help London get through this next phase of the pandemic. We will continue to work with the mayor and the government on our longer-term funding needs. As always, our people work tirelessly to serve Londoners and businesses. support the city`s economy and offer our customers excellent, safe and reliable service every day. The argument that “people who don`t use a service shouldn`t pay for it” is not the way taxes work. Personally, I don`t use many of the services for which my taxes are paid, and I know that there are services that I use as the majority of people are not, but they are still funded by general taxes. They can argue about the level of taxation and how it is perceived, but the idea that someone should not pay for it simply because they do not personally use a service, a) and b) does not profit from it indirectly is not an argument that would support any government in the world. I don`t think it would be a bad idea to get additional revenue from people who pay taxes outside of London to add some kind of marginal tax, such as .B. stopping Zone 6 at the border and introducing Zone 7, limiting funnel fares to Zone 6 and increasing bus fares outside Zone 6 to reflect costs.
of operation of these services. A similar road policy would also be a good thing to leave the congestion zone as it is and add an outdoor area, only a nominal amount of £5 with a 100% discount. However, the problem with the increase in municipal tax is that commuters and tfL service users in London who live in the leafy suburbs of Kent, Surrey, Essex, Herts, Bucks, etc. do not pay their share of the ticket price. Rates for over 66-you are a national issue, but this still needs to be reimbursed to the operator by the local authority at the county level. So the taxpayers of London are already paying for it, whereas it is the direct subsidy from the government that has to pay for it. TfL was on the verge of being exposed to the risk of a large-scale closure if funding had not been agreed by last night, as it had violated its legal power to spend money. . . .
