Petition Action

Cheaper bus fares for young people

Additional Information

This e-petition calls on the UK Government to address the concerns of young people about expensive bus fares, following the British Youth Council campaign and the UK Youth Parliament’s debate in the House of Commons Chamber based on a ballot of 65,000 young people across the UK.

Young people across the UK currently face a postcode lottery of expensive bus fares – many don't receive concessionary fares and get child fares until they are 16. On top of this, many existing concessionary schemes for young people are being cut as a result of cuts to local authority budgets for transport.

We need the UK Government to work with bus providers and local authorities to make sure that there are cheaper bus fares for young people, concessionary schemes, and standardised child fares for those aged 16 and under. We need to make sure bus fares don’t affect our ability to get to college or get a job. Our generation can’t afford to miss out on opportunities because bus fares are too expensive.
