Mayor, MP and First Bus campaigner discuss ways to tackle high fares
BUS fares campaigner Daniel Farr met with Bristol mayor George Ferguson and Bristol North West MP Charlotte Leslie to discuss his petition to reduce First Bus fares.
Mr Farr, a 33-yearol-old graphic designer, started his petition in December, 2012. He needs only 81 more signatures to reach 3,500 and trigger a council debate.
Ms Leslie said increasing competition into the Bristol bus network, introducing Oyster-style cards and First’s consultation on fares were discussed at today’s meeting.
First Bus announced they would be reviewing fares at a press conference held days before a Make Fares Fair protest at Malborough Street Bus Station earlier this month.

The company says high fares in Bristol are partly a consequence of slow traffic speeds in the city.
A spokeswoman has encouraged passengers to engage with the consultation which is set to be launched soon.
