Thanks for all the help. These signatures will now be combined with the hundreds collected on paper and sent with a report to Arriva.
We are Emma and Hollie the Members of Youth Parliament for Telford and Wrekin. As part of our local campaign we are petitioning against the bus company Arriva in our area to bring back the Local Child Day Rider and to obtain child fares for under 18's.
Currently, we can only buy a child day rider for the West Midlands, which is more expensive than the local adult day rider!
We have decided to campaign about this after a survey of around 400 young people and out of the 3 options, 47% wanted to bring back the day rider and 95% agreed that under-18's should not have to pay adult fares.
We want to bring back the local child day rider for buses within Telford & Wrekin, at a suggested price of £2.50.
We also want all under-18s to pay child fares and not have to pay adult prices once they reach 16.
If you agree with this and want to support our campaign, sign this petition :)
