Green party adds 10% cut in rail and bus fares to manifesto
Leader Natalie Bennett would limit £15bn road-building programme to save public transport passengers £1.8bn a year
The Green party would scrap the building of new roads and use the money to pay for a 10% cut in bus and rail fares, Natalie Bennett, its leader, has said.
Bennett, who is standing for the Greens in Holborn and St Pancras, said her party would scrap the bulk of the government’s £15bn road-building programme. The resulting savings would be used to subsidise public transport, translating into a £1.8bn-a-year cut in fares for train and bus passengers.
