Don’t force taxpayers to plug TfL funding gap, says IEA expert
Christopher Snowdon quoted in the Daily Mail
“It is wrong to force taxpayers to subsidise public transport services that many of them never use. The Mayor of London should make up the funding shortfall through a combination of fare increases and spending cuts. Changing travel habits mean expensive new public transport infrastructure will no longer be needed, potentially saving tens of billions in the long term.”
