Earn Your Travel Back

On Sunday morning I joined some young people who were clearing undergrowth and improving the natural habitat on the chalk heathland on the Bromley – Croydon border. They were working with the Wildlife Trust as part of the Earn Your Travel Back scheme.

All the young people had had their Zip cards confiscated for inappropriate behaviour on the buses and were giving something back in order to get their cards returned. While they weren’t overly happy to be there the feedback forms they submitted clearly showed that the scheme made them think about their behaviour and the implications of their conduct.

This scheme will be rolled out across London over the forthcoming months and will work alongside the increase in Safer Transport Teams to make public transport a safer and more pleasant experience for everyone.
