You may have read that the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has confirmed he has started the six month process of withdrawing the Day Travelcard used by so many to get to, and travel throughout, London by train and tube.

The Travelcard allows a holder the opportunity of unlimited travel around the capital on public transport. It allows us to buy our train and tube travel together. None of the stations in  our area are located in the Oyster Card area so we will be forced to buy train and tube tickets separately. This is a decision that will impact us all, making it harder for us all to travel to London and beyond.

While the Mayor of London has made it clear that while he will trigger the six month notice, he is open to reversing it. Tom Tugendhat, MP, is collating messages to the Mayor of London on this subject so please fill out the short form on his website here.

He will be sharing with him the strength of feeling across Tonbridge, Edenbridge, and Malling as to how damaging this will be for anyone visiting London.
