Bus fare campaigner to meet with mayor George Ferguson and MP Charlotte Leslie today
BUS fares campaigner Daniel Farr will meet Bristol mayor George Ferguson and MP Charlotte Leslie today, as his petition gathers more steam.
Mr Farr, a 33-year-old graphic designer living on Anchor Road, started a petition which has attracted almost 3,500 signatures - the number needed to trigger a council debate.
His Make Fares Fair campaign held a protest at Marlborough Street Bus Station earlier this month.
Local politicians spoke at the event, as did regional managing director of First Bus Justin Davies.

First has announced a review of their prices and explained that slow traffic speeds in Bristol have contributed to high fares.
The company's fares in Bristol are among their highest in the UK, according to a 2011 survey.
A spokeswoman at First said the company will be engaging with passengers through a wide-reaching consultation on their fares.
