Dawne Mckenzie started this petition to Government and Mayor of London and

I like so many others am a parent and my child was fortunate to have free travel during her education, which helped and saved me financially especially during times of being unemployed.

I have started this petition as I believe this will affect millions of pupils, parents & carers throughout London.  On a daily basis there are hundreds of thousands of school children taking buses or trains to and from school. If the government stop free travel for these pupils most will suffer greatly and may not even have enough money to pay for their journeys to and from school, this will also impact families, especially those on a low income, as they will now have to find additional monies to send their children to school to get an education. Thousands of people have lost their means of income or their jobs  due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Taking away free travel for their children will have several disastrous knock-on effects such as lack of education, undue stress, mental health issues, increased debt.

Education is the most important thing for a child and they should in no way be made to suffer due to financial constraints, the government should provide this essential free travel for EVERY CHILD................

The Government and The Mayor of London surely cannot allow this to happen THINK OF THE CHILDREN if they cannot afford travel, then they cannot receive an EDUCATION !!!!!
