|Freeze all TfL fares at 2016 prices for four years.||I'll improve the capacity and reliability of London's transport system.||Half price fares on Underground, Overground and TFL Rail Services for people travelling by 7.30am.||Reduce the number of fare zones to four from next year, and bring in a completely flat fare structure by 2025.|
|A first-year cut and then a freeze in bus fares, and new ‘Hopper’ bus ticket – valid for any number of journeys in a full hour.||The rise of electric cars means that bus lanes will eventually become an unnecessary part of London's transport system.||The one-hour London bus ticket has been a prominent proposal of the capital’s Liberal Democrats for at least six years.||We’ll also introduce a new ‘ONE Ticket’ that will let you change between any mode of transport on the way to your destination.|

|"Boris Johnson was wrong to commit £30 million of London taxpayers’ money to the Garden Bridge. But thanks to my new deal, it looks like Londoners will get the best of both worlds."||"I accept that it's costly, but in the context of the TfL budget, in the context of the vast amounts of TfL waste, I think this is a project we can justify."||"There is something iffy about the whole thing. If I became mayor I would withdraw funding from it and be looking very carefully at the whole project."||"It would not get a penny from the transport budget - as a grant or a loan - if I were Mayor. I favour more foot and cycle crossings in the areas where they are desperately needed, such as Rotherhithe and North Greenwich."|
|» Champion new measures to encourage cycling and walking, while also making them safer.|
» More cycle storage in commercial and residential areas, and more emphasis on making junctions and key routes safer for cyclists and pedestrians.
|Encourage safer cycling||It is simply shameful that year after year TfL have repeatedly spent just a fraction of their allocated budget on vital improvements to junctions and investing in cycling infrastructure.||» Make space on the roads for safe cycling, walking, play and all kinds of things that aren’t cars.|
» Aim to spend 10 per cent of TfL's capital budget on cycling and walking infrastructure.
|Create the longest pedestrianised shopping area in Europe by pedestrianizing Oxford Street.||Oxford Street is an air quality disaster at the moment and I think it’s very antisocial for people who work and use Oxford Street to have a great train of buses there.||We are calling for Oxford Street to be fully pedestrianised by 2020.||As for Oxford Street, Berry wants to change it "radically" by introducing a shuttle tram.|

» Ambitious plans for a 'Boris Bike' equivalent for electric cars.
|A big switch towards zero emission electric buses and taxis, not diesel hybrids, is now vital in London.||We will clean London’s air and make this a healthy city for children to grow up in and communities to play in, and we want travel in London to be a joy, not a burden.|

» Introduce a peak-time ban on HGVs in central London.
|A replacement to the creaking Congestion Charge, covering all of London not just a small central zone, should start consultation as soon as the next mayor takes over, with a set of fair new charges based on three principles: how far you drive, how polluting your vehicle is, and the time of day.|
|Sadiq will campaign against the proposed third runway, and in favour of a second runway at Gatwick||Zac has campaigned continuously to oppose a 3rd runway at Heathrow airport, which would create huge noise and air pollution particularly for local residents.||We need a better run Heathrow, not a bigger Heathrow.||» No to all new runways in London – at Gatwick not just Heathrow.|

|» Retain the Olympic Precept at £20 a year and convert it into a Housing Precept. This "Olympic Housing" effort will enable us to access £2 billion of funds. We can build 50,000 new council homes and 150,000 homes for private rent and sale.|
» The government’s plan to extend the right to buy to housing association tenants will be an incredibly expensive policy as well as undermining the viability of the whole housing association sector.
|» I pledge not to demolish estates in London if I’m elected. It’s almost always much better to improve than to knock down communities.|
» The GLA’s closed fire and police stations (currently under-occupied by property guardians) to be offered for emergency accommodation for refugees while we find permanent homes through councils.
|As Mayor, I'll crack down on overseas investors buying up new homes before Londoners.||Giving Londoners the first chance to buy new homes built in London - any homes built on mayoral land will only be sold to Londoners.|| || |

|We have the best arts & culture in the world, but it’s out of reach for too many Londoners.||All paid for without increasing Mayoral council tax.||I call on English Heritage to work with Greenwich Council to ensure that a blue plaque is erected near to Emily Davison’s birthplace in Blackheath.||Join me to give London back to Londoners.|
