Free night time transport for women on low incomes

0 have signed. Let’s get to 75,000!

With a recent UN study confirming 97% of young women in the UK have been victims of sexual harassment and in the wake of the tragic murder of Sarah Everard, TfL can play a part in significantly reducing the risk of street attacks for women.  

Please sign this petition to show TfL that you want to see free transport introduced for women on low incomes after dark to reduce the need for walking alone at night. According to Trust For London, this is 29% of London’s women, and more than 38% of Londoners from BAME backgrounds.

There is an increased risk with those having to make essential journeys on regular routes after late shifts. Free transport for those who can’t otherwise afford it will lessen the time they need to spend on the streets at night and therefore the risk of attack.

Another benefit in the unfortunate event of an attack is that CCTV on the bus or at underground and rail stations will give the police essential evidence meaning the perpetrator would be caught sooner, stopping them from attacking again. 

Thank you in advance for playing a part in protecting London’s women.
