An 18+ Oyster and a 16-25 Railcard is NOT ENOUGH.
Students are struggling day in and day out, to survive.
Why should students be penalised for wanting a higher education?
Boris Johnson and Sadiq Khan have rejected similar petitions asking for free travel due to students already receiving discounts, however the cards that are currently available are not realistic.
With prices only discounting 30%, I am currently paying £15 a day to get to my university in London, all because I decided to further my education.
To go from a 16+ oyster which includes free buses and fair train/tube prices, to be expected to pay ridiculous and expensive fairs is a JOKE.
My solution is one card specifically for full time uni students - which gives 50% discount on all transport.
Not only does this combine the 18+ oyster and the 16-25 Railcard, but it allows more students to have the freedom of studying in one of the greatest cities in the world, without having the struggles of worrying how they are going to afford their journey to university the next day.
