Free transport for all London students

This petition had 9 supporters

With an 18+ Oyster card students in London are granted a 30% discount on adult-rate travel cards and bus and tram season tickets. There is no immediate reduction on a bus fare with this card and with a 16-25 railcard a student gets a 34% reduction on off peak fares across Tube, DLR, London Overground, TfL Rail and most National Rail services in London. 

With rising rent prices in London, students are finding living harder and harder. Most student loans don't suffice in covering rent meaning a lot of students work whilst they study just so that they can buy food and other essentials. The price of transport can be crippling to a student that has to get a bus or a train every day just to get to and from Uni. If students had free travel across all TfL services it would alleviate a great strain from many students financially making life far easier and less stressful.

Students NEED free travel. We would drastically benefit from a free Oyster card, the cost of travel should not hinder our education. We shouldn't have to worry about whether we can afford to get to and from Uni or go to the library. TfL should make students in London feel welcome. Free transport for all London students!
