Free travel for University students in Full Time Education

This petition had 71,615 supporters

As university students, we believe the fare to travel to and from university is unfairly expensive, even with the 18+ Oyster and 16-25 Railcard.

Students are constantly traveling in London- most London universities don’t have a centralised campus, plus with local accommodation so expensive, lots of students travel miles to attend uni from home.

Many of us have to pay a ridiculous amount of money in order to attend a lecture that is only an hour long- which results in students being absent on days that they don’t have a busy schedule. When you’re a full time student, and part time work is hard to come by, you just can’t afford to travel back and forth across London.

Removing the fare for university students will motivate individuals to attend lectures regularly and will finally allow students to get the most out of their university and their degree.

We are young adults who are trying to achieve the best in life by taking the decision to get into further education. But right now that is difficult to do when we aren’t being adequately provided for.

We urge you to reconsider and please, fund our travel.
