London ACG Public Meeting on Public Transport December 1st 2019

Discussion Meeting: Free Public Transport for All

The current transport system is based on the car and road-building culture. This is one of the key causes of climate change and pollution, both air and noise. Meanwhile, the public transport system is overcrowded and expensive in cities and non-existent in rural areas. With housing increasing in price in the centre of urban areas, people are forced to move further and further out and end up paying a large portion of their wages and time just to get to work. And, there is continual pressure to undermine the working conditions and safety concerns of transport workers.
Join us for a discussion of these issues and help develop a campaign for free public transport for all, building a united movement of workers and users.

Timely discussion. I was reminded of an old piece of propaganda which the SPGB circulated way/way back during some Greater London Council elections talking about the possibility of free transport as a 'practical' option under discussion by left-leaning politicians - a kind of 'transitional demand' to something better. Maybe one of their members might dig it out?

Can’t make it. Won’t be seeing you guys for a while as I’m about to start work in Lisbon for a couple of months.
